Marching in the Dark

Marching, hup-1-2-3
eyes ahead, no left or right
good soldier I will be
keeping focused on
only what I want to see

How blind and self-centred
we are at times
going after what we want
with ruthlessness and cunning
stepping on all who
get in our way.

Yet when we act without love
we dim the light in our soul
for only love feeds the light
and without it
we sink into the dark
where wretched wait
to claim one more.
