Dark skies

Rolling, rolling
It crashed over the horizon

They listened
But their fear couldn’t silence the thunder

Fighting for a day

United by a struggle
Empowered by love
Fueled by fear
To the sky we turned
In a moment of desperation
We begged the gods for repentance
We asked the stars
For a moment of light
We asked the night
For the day
And the day
For a little more time
