Light Extinguished
When darkness comes
Who then will bring the light?
When all hope has gone
Who then will restore?
The battles are done;
But few have been won.
All the men who fought
Have come to know the darkness
Their blood spilled meaningless
Mingled with that of the evil.
There will be no dawn!
The world shall remain black!
What hope have we?
What is left of our fallen people?
The Enemy comes upon us-
There are none who can fight!
The men are dead
Our lives are forfeit; left unguarded
As the Black conquered
So it sealed our fate.
Widows are weeping
Children silent; their eyes unseeing
Who now may take a stand?
The Shadows grow deeper,
Our thoughts grow darker
Where now can we place our Hope?
