Tomorrow knows not what the night will bring, for it is by the shadow of darkness that the children of yesterday are taught to sing.

Abel’s courage


 Whispers fall into the silver of night

As old men of charity succumb to the dearth of light.

Winged patriarchs of number fill the tops of trees

While priest seeking penitence gather on bended knee.

Days crumble beneath the weight of worldly sin

Tomorrow haggles the nights precursor

As the future of yesterday is soon to begin.

Oh little does man know of how it will soon be,

As the night of forever is consumed by a desert sea.

The stars of heaven will wax so cold,

The mountains of Abel’s courage

Will rise once more to the light behold.

Then from within the silver darkness

The sons of Cain will of at last taste

The enmity of their own destruction

As the future of their sordid tomorrow is laid to waste.

Damn, Al, that is one heavy poem, so much so that as I may not understand it or its meaning, kickin' as usual, Al...Ed & Rufuz (should I ask Rufuz for an explanation, he is so much smarter than his dad)

This is so true it is painful. You might have added a few more sentences. Something that explained how God will put back together what we have driven asunder.
God Bless,

Dust to dust and greed matters not when the day of judgement comes. When will man hear this two minute call.Your pens are always ripe with wisdom.
