The Tempest at Dawn

Our lives inexplicably entwined 
My mind could not find

Tempest conjures the mysterious 
Yet old wounds bring weariness

Our lives began to bend
Towards each other 
Like two trees trying to mend

Mutually yearning to grow
Yet somehow I know 
That life has brought us
To these common paths
Through integrity 
We stand with our staffs

Looking out into the unknown
What will we be shown?

The horizon is caped at dawn
Will the sun rise beyond our yawns

Apathy poses silent danger
Is our generation the game changer 
Or will we remain atomized strangers
