What will come of tomorrow when the exit wounds continue

to stack on top of each other

 

The seeds that have been planted don’t even get the chance to sprout fully,

weeds know how to pull a trigger

 

Hopes, dreams, and aspirations are resilient foundations for life,

but the big bad wolf has tsunami lungs

capable of wiping the foundation clean in minutes with alloy waves where even

light-hearted limbs struggle to stay afloat

 

Evolution and adaptation has proved progressive on a cellular level,

but they never did believe beyond that

 

We often learn from tragic events, but I guess the lesson to be learned as they continue,

is to put faith into an abiding dissonance 

 

There are times when souls should be able to fly freely, with no disregard

these are not one of those times

for souls with no bodies are not free—rather, they are lost and dilapidated

with so many of them still bleeding what their host cannot
