Light Disappears As Dark Surrounds

By DJ Baker

Light disappears as dark surrounds

The ants on the ground in massive
numbers - a huge swarm

The giants from above crushing
their tiny bodies
                        one
                               by
                                    one
The ants become extinct.

The emotions are lost when they
come out I hear sadness, anger and             loneliness

They call me, light whispers in my ear
not knowing who or what they are

I feel fear.

I ask myself what those whispers mean
are they as scary as they seem

I don't know what they are saying
these voices I hear

the ghosts of the dead ants seem to draw near
they must go on even though they are                gone

so empty inside
for
I am also gone

I ask myself
Why do I go on?
