Dawn of Despair

the young lions face
the challenges
of adaptation and development
in the ‘hood of promise
trying to build a new life from the
fragments of the old;
singing the blues
in the darkest
hour of longing.

yet, you cross the invisible
barriers of the mind at the
dawn of despair
(in a world of goodness)
weaving dreams
despite the bumpy ride
along the
mystery path

how wonderful is the scent
of survival
under the silver moon?

you dance to the sound
of a different drum
with renewed
vigour and vitality
my heart
with songs of wonder
the pain and anxiety of transition
in the new frontier of reason
