Eclipse

A rising sun,
For the call has just begun.
Vivid colors
From ominous darks
To vibrant lights.
A world expecting so much
Yet so little.
Prance gracefully along the trail;
It seems so easy
Yet you have not seen the challenge
that lies ahead.
For this paradise seems infinite
But in the midst of all this
The sun is slowly setting.
As you play, so carefree,
You suddenly reach a dead end.
Knives, spears; attempts to cut through
Yet all remain futile.
Looking up in the sky
The sun is only a sliver
Against the horizon
A tear rolls down your cheek
For devastation has dominated your soul.
You finally realize
This has come to an end.
Gaze thoughtfully at the shimmering stars
Your last resort.
Emptiness has consumed you
But at last you see the vibrant colors
Brighter than before.
