Shrouded in a dingy green
Meshed mosquito net
Inside a dark and smoky room
Listening to rumbling voices
Echo into the darkness...

I float on a dream of fear
Filled with false images
Of a far away place
Anticipating the awakening
From this nightmare...

When death awakened
The truth from its slumber
And I rose
Into the light
Of day...
