Somber Stars

I used to be afraid of the dark

But darkness consumed my life and I lived my life in fear

The night was dark

 

I used to have hope and stars in my eyes

But my hope was burned alive and ash covered the sky

The night was dark

 

I used to recognize myself and others

But we were all the same   everything -- including our souls -- taken away

The night was dark

 

I used to have faith in God

But how could someone have faith in God that could let this happen

The night was dark

 

I used to think that it was the end

But the soldiers came and seized all fear and restored all hope

The night was not so dark
