The darkness of the sky shattered one day
Due to the power of the sun.
The brightness of the sky shattered one night
Due to the power of the moon.
But the miracle was the in-between.
Some gave their last breaths,
While others took their first.
Some suffered cruel injustices,
While others watched behind the glass.
Events occurred that were beyond their control
And yet they remained victims of the abuse.
And fell silent when ordered to.
They watched the sun rise and fall day and day again
Until one day they took part in that rising.
