Monument

Is envisioning a better future enough?

Are we still reaching toward the light

That we believe shines through these shadows

Cast by the towering monuments

We’ve let grow far too large for too long?

Or have our eyes so adjusted to the darkness

By our chosen disbelief in facts

That shadows will mute the very light we seek to find?

Now do we stand exposed in the open

So we can sense that forgotten light,

Even if it means the hidden is laid bare?

Or do we cower underneath these idols

Do we hide within their shadows?

Do we choose to give up the day for the night?
