CELEBRATION OF WOE

A glance away from yesterday and a step ahead of tomorrow, Caught between the misery of tears and time, The lone path of blood and solitude.

How did we get here?

The essence of humanity is now clothed in discreet; Imagery of hate and lies. Humanity has taken the path of sentiments, Judgement is lurked in the darkness of each heart.

How did we get here?

The world has traded it's formality, Now we're strangers to love. We've climbed the heights of bitterness, And stepped the depth of envy. This company we keep is void of kindness. Yet we act like we don't know.

How did we get here?

Peace is at war! The gong of hatred in resounded in our hearts, Our household is torn in grit and glaring, Man is no longer a brother to his neighbor. We fight this cold war unending...

Again I ask, How did we get here?

Shake my head and flame my bones, The world is truly a place of survival. Hide my feelings behind the wall of pretence, I cannot afford to let it out, For the religion of man is a caliphate of deceit. He preaches love but yet gives pain.

All lies!

I see them gathered and shaking hands, The first man had castigated and envied the second man, The second man has never liked the first man either, The third man is talking about peace while he just stirred war in his household. Yet they shake hands like they all smell of love.

Hypocrites!

Celebration of woe.
