Salvation

Salvation is here

walking among us,

shadowed and grey,

avoiding the colours 

that take us all 

into the lair.

 

Salvation is waiting

among the ruins and

the lives not lived 

in perfection

but in survival’s 

desperate place.

 

Salvation is here,

conscious, grieving

breathing, smiling,

a touch away,

not out there in 

Plato’s cave.
