empty mountain dwellings

i said, to all the hidden sages
of humanity, i said please
do not despair
of humanity for in all its ignorance
and great disaster there is still
potential

and though times may be bleak, please
do not despair
of humanity for there are still those
who are true if only in private
and mostly thankless ways

oh, hidden sages of humanity, i said please
i beg you
do not fold in on yourselves do not
withdraw from your mountain dwellings
and fade to myth

for there are still those
who are true and those
who are willing, oh

hidden sages of humanity

for them i beg you please
do not despair of humanity, i said
and then i waited

and a cold wind replied.
