A collaboration with Rana Begum

A banal hard exterior, almost repulsing, until the colour catches the eye –

Only the curious will enter in the depth of its void,

Two hopeless ‘todayers’ beaming a light on tomorrow’s hope:

Yet again Phoenix will rise from the ashes beyond the horizon,

Born with renewed wisdom, healing, repairing what is lost . .

What have we lost? Humanity.

Dear tomorrow, hope is all in your hand.
