insatiable thirst and hunger pangs

In Arts & Entertainment, Culture, Poetry by Nicole Crawford

we who cannot see the beauty 

that resides in our collective struggle 

for liberation..

will soon be devoured 

by our own insatiable thirst 

for validation and survival 

and the beast that haunts us all 

cannot survive in the light, 

he may only take hold of us 

when our fear of the shadows 

becomes so consuming 

that we can see no way 

out of the darkness
