2023 Ars Philosophica Poems

Dark Arts

Creatures of darkness
Holding the Flame
Harshly contrasting light
Illuminates lines up the arms
And the globe of the head.

Everything about us is darkness
without light
fear, violence, brutality, hatred, dominance

The first fire
Was in the mind
The first light
Ignited the Soul

It matters not if we are divine
We are either creatures of light
Or creatures of the darkness
In between

By Makar
