Shrouded in confidence

Hidden in brilliance

Marred by indignation

Wrought of retaliation

 

Shaken by words, how strange!

Do words not lack the power to change?

Hearts that are fragile and weak

Seek a desperate future that is bleak

The indignant stays the course

And is ignorant of the hypocrisy in force!

 

Cutting of all avenues of hope

You harm yourself beyond what you can cope

The fires of wrath blind your indignation

You twist justice to suit your frustration

 

Can you not see the twisted lie?

Astray and awry, you echo a just cry

But one that neither consoles nor sways

The death by the furious blaze

 

Drowned by your own reclusion

You angrily demand a conclusion

Why is it that you do not seek accord?

Rather force it upon the sword

How does this hypocrisy breed?

Know that Justice cannot be bought in greed!
