Jacques Steyn  

where's the dawn?


sky is dark
clouds are cold
sleep the lark
night grows cold

 gone's the light
 shades are tall
 hell's in sight
 where fire falls

where's the dawn?
where's the sun?
where's the warmth?
where's the light?
come on the light!

hearts are cold
reign in fear
souls are sold
night is here

corpses burn
hate is fed
no cheeks are turned
love is dead
