darkness

the darkness came
enfolding us in unknowing
and
all were sore afraid
and
folks, good folks, sought shelter
safety
for they did not know this darkness
and
in the darkness
they built their barriers to caring
for their own protection
eventually making no sense
creating war amongst good folks
with no definition of
what is was all about
except they knew
they all knew
even though
what they knew was different
and
in the darkness
someone
saw a light
saw the goodness of the folks
who had drawn
their lines in the sand
but
could not see the lines
because of the darkness
enveloping the land
and
they did not hear the someone
screaming about the light he saw
and
they did not see the light
because they were ready to war
over the lines they had drawn
in the darkness.
