A Flower in a Tomb

A Flower in a Tomb

2003, By Dion Mohammed

Within the heart of mankind looms
Darkness of a grey dismal tomb
Where seldom a light is seen
In a world that is seen as mean

Yet within this darkness is a bloom
One flower that opens coloured plumes
Contrasting the grey of its room
Spreading its light into its dark tomb.

It is true what they say
That even in the dark, dismal array
Love and life will find a way
Beckoning the light to shine today.
