Harbingers, of times of trial and test
Looming over the horizon,
Effusion, of rain and blood and sweat.
The heart it cringes and the mind, withdraws
Bolls; of tainted cotton
Progressing through sullen sky
Nigh, approach the despondent greys
Trudging above forlorn eyes.
But, as the eyes cast down in defeat
And they laid down the arms of hope,
A blade of brilliant light
Perforates the shroud.
And on shines glorious hope!
Through the beaten clouds
And the eyes, they open towards heaven and see
