  • Unforgiving World

     

    Darkness covers light with tearing

     

    Talons of

     

    Uncertainty…

     

    The world is covered with

     

    Fearful screams and

     

    The anguish of hatred…

     

    Only birds can escape with flight,

     

    Humans captive to the earth and

     

    The emptiness of infinity sob amid

     

    Splinters of shattered glass

     

    Lies, search for clemency in an

     

    Unforgiving world…

     

    That destroys all optimism.
