The windows draw you,
the light, the promise, the fact
that they are not merely a picture frame
to the world outside,
but bring much needed light
where light is most needed:
For this is where the darkness lies.
There is no blaming the sun, or
the panorama of green beyond your walls.
If there is darkness, it is within,
If there is a battle, it is within.
and it there the victory,
or the slow ebb of defeat
