 Darkness Descends by LESLEY B
Clear

Currently unavailable for purchase



In the pain of no tomorrows
She sinks into her mind
Forever sleeping a never ending lullaby
Soul lost in spiritual desire
Ripped heart, mutilated mind
Blood running to bleed away
Forever sleeping a never ending lullaby
Time stoped still, forever feeling
As darkness descends she’s lost
Mind cannot see an opening
Silently dying, silently dying
Forever sleeping a never ending lullaby.

My grandfather taught me how to do Aboriginal dot paintings he instilled tradition and a proudness of my heratidge, My grangmother was waradjuri tribe one of the biggest tribes of New South Wales (Australia), My grandmother decends from the murry’s and roses, she was from the stolen generation… I paint real places in Australia every painting has a story or purpose , MY FAMILY, MY PEOPLE, MY LAND !!!

    This is so painful to see. It must be far more so for you.

    Since you say "*through*, I hope she is alive and well.

  • Thankyou for your beautiful comment… Yes she is alive and well, but even though this capture is make believe the story is not, I was remembering a time when all was not well with her, and moments as a mother who could not wave a magic wand and make everything right again… So very observant of you my friend … xox Lesley xox …
