Lost in selective silence
the world blocked out
heads bent
choosing to be lost,
darkness overpowering the light.

The race is on
refusing to look up
capturing for the future
kaleidoscope of memories
of a virtual past
adding temporary colour
to the otherwise blackout.

Where has it gone?
Tomorrow is now
embrace the colours
walk in the light.
Darkness will eventually come
to show what’s actually there.

Wake up to the beauty
shake off the silence
hear what is
screaming quietly
break off what is
to what it should.
