Everybody is fond of the sunset

signalling the end of another

wasted day in the dune of wasted

days, weeks, months and

years and years.


Every sunset I am disappointed with myself

yet still drunk on its romance.


With every sunrise however

life radiates each shadow,

each curtain thin or thick,

each orphan still in bed,

each prison cell.

For everyone there is

a new freshness in its breeze

despite all sins,

repeated mistakes,

diminished hope,

and human madness.


The sun will rise

unwearied, undefeated.

Even if it’s going to be the same story

over and over and over, again.


The sun will rise

until a handful of souls

break this cycle like snowdrops.
