  • Writer's pictureMario Mainland


The moon will always shine

the sun will always burn

in darkest time of coldest night

but sometimes their scintillant faces will be void and black.

The pages will always turn

and the pen will always write

but sometimes the ink runs dry and the pages stare back.

So let the words flow if they're not erudite

and let the eclipse come in awe and churn

it's like the seasons

like autumn and spring,

man will forget what the child will learn -

God's oath:

Allow the pendulum its swing,

when it's up, rejoice,

when it's down, hope,

when it's in balance, prepare for both.

- MM
