One Day

one-day

The shadows walk a bloody path
Where meaning has no name
While white birds try to pluck the eyes
From men to pilfer shame
Fingers point to mock each place
Where innocence was spoiled
Long will be the days of woe
And by his sweat he’ll toil
Shadows carry chains of sin
That take away their choice
To bear the many scars of red
Yet I can hear each voice
Softly singing in the fields
A prayer that never dies
One day it all will be revealed
When birds return their eyes
