Empty Nest

I watched the robin nest

As I entered the den

Of the lions

I wish them well

They wish to take my life

Hoping the current of good swells

As vilifying waves crash over me

I gave gifts

And was gifted punishment

We all think we are good

We all do our best

With a fucked up world

I digress

Anger and rage

Begot the worst of bedfellows

Doing my best

To help a tragic world

To my last grasp

Trying to make things better

When the void calls

I hope it takes me completely

I was not built to last

In this world

I would never ask

For the mercy

We could never deserve

Take flight my little birds

As terrified as you are

As you should

I gave you hearth

Your fear just punishes me
