Brilliance Rises…In the Shadows of the Broken

I see your brilliance…
A rising sun….
You permeate…
A Mother’s love…
Giving rise to each new day…
Giving rise to what comes your way….

How sad was that day when brilliance became measured on a scale?
When humanity became a commodity to be possessed then disregarded…

When will we see the catastrophe of our failing…
When will we look once again at the unfinished and see the rawness of true beauty…
When will we see the unwavering rhythm of her heart…

In the spirit of the persistent…
In the shadows of the broken…
In the gutting of the soul….
In the peaceful twilight of a life given…

What will be the brilliance of the generations to come?
Where will their riches come?
