Title: The Turning of the Tide

I have seen the brilliant light

Hidden behind the all-consuming darkness

I have witnessed the awaiting abundance

While wearing the robes of a pauper

I have tasted the fruits of the harvest

During times of scavenging for crumbs

I have felt the healing powers that lie beyond

Even during times of utter despair

I have heard the laughter of children in fields of lilac

As they cry behind walls of concrete

I now see the brilliant light

Emerging from above and coming into sight

Yes, the tide is surely turning

It is what we all have long been yearning
