Dim and gloomy

Deep in the dungeon

They sit

Dishshevelled looks

Deepening frown lines

Startled and alarmed

At the turn of the tide

Worries mock their senses

Where is the escape?

Will anything be enough?

The weight of mounting expectations

“We ain’t no miracle workers!”

Dear ones,

I hate to burst your bubble

But you’re fighting a war

No less

There’s no time to waste

Keep on!

Keep on!

No one’s seen the future

Keep on

Marching towards the light

Take heart!

A different world awaits




“As far as we can discern, the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light in the darkness of mere being.”

― Carl Jung
