Precipice

Opinions denied

The father long gone

Just selfish children

Slow poison

 

Thinking

An arduous activity

Salvation in our vices

Future for other children to decide

 

Children command children

Wisdom is for owls

Knowledge trapped in books

 

Forget the past

Forsake the future

Feel only the present

Failure

 

Forget these lies

We cannot be stopped

Delusions of grandeur

Delude only ourselves

 

The past

Mirrored by the present

To watch it die

Drown with your possessions

 

Nothing left sacred

When love left forgotten

Things do not fit

Where your soul should be

 

Swallow your savior

Numbness on the horizon

 

We failed our fathers

Ourselves

Our children

Yet there is no remorse

 

Let it fail

The shattered

Lie broken still

 

Slowly bleeding out

Cut the arteries

Save us

With a quicker death

 

Plodding forward

Eyes to the sky

Hope at such great height

As you sink into the ground

 

Foolishness is not it’s own punishment

These wrongs will be righted

By the will of god

Or the actions of man
