Darkness

by Nasima

The evil is there

My angel

I am weaker than before

Unable to give you shelter

God sleeps

The voice of darkness

Is louder than

The bell of the church

The temples are shaking

The voice of God’s man

Is silenced

The heart of the earth is shaking

Orphan tears are unknown

The evil gets bigger

Oh! God sleeps

My angel

The storm of darkness

Breaks through to my heart

All are blind

I hear a voice

A voice that calls me

I am here

Forgettable me
