Yearning Grey

Hope
the fluttering butterfly I felt in my chest
beating willfully against its enemy
guilt, anger, fear
all the things
that
we know so well
that I am just discovering
to be filled with helpless thought
a plague addicted to loathing
I guess thats me
now?
to relish the fact of grief
of all things
that live in shades of grey?
Grey

I want to live!
to feel night air on my face
the blindness of the dark
the tingle of fear to be all alone
lost in a veil of black
in a foreign land
with foreign people
that fluttering bird of hope
wants to fly!
wants to sing!
but doesn’t know how
so long has she been under her enemy’s wall
so long
can I teach her?
to learn to fly she must know her enemy
is is fair?
that even hope
cannot be free
without knowing despair?
