UTOPIA Fire…smoke…death…horror Lurking fear Gruesome reality Yet The sunflowers bloom In the throes of death Shadows of dread Trace the path of light Undying Bright…glorious…eternal That sparkling flame Must survive A dark tunnel Flooded with loss… Till One day The strife ends A flock of white doves Will soar the cloudless blue heights Fearless Millions of sunflowers Will bloom in perpetual spring
