Minds lost in an unforgiving world,

Broken hearts which time does not weld.

Cries of agony and pain are echoed throughout,

Minds are filled with fear and doubt.


Hopeful sights are placed on the heavens,

Of cheerful spirits only remain theruins.

Faith and hope are but distant memories,

Pain and suffering are thecomponentsof stories.


Bombs and hate destroy what was never created,

Many fall who had never ascended.

Blood flows throughout lifeless rivers,

The wealth and power go to the highest bidders.
