In time he rested,
never a quiet thought,
never an empty void.

When light faded,
when dark retreated,
When worship hated,
When disgust adored;

Will he ever see tunnel again?
Of the faint
and of the obscure
Yet of the strong
and of the pure.

He sees again
of the soul intertwined with the sick
Determination corrupted

He sees again
of the martyr broken
in the land of the blissful sufferer.

Was truth invincible?
The man lay down and slept long,
Embracing, nagging.

The author's comments:
A very abstract poem, written by putting together a lot of mainly random thoughts. However, it does have direction to it, and I hope that readers see that even as senseless as it may look, there's always a purpose. :)
