Civility’s Demise

ddddd

The value of the past eludes us.

The same mistakes on repeat.

Reflection would serve us well.

Empathy would too.

Oh, realize the worth of our tragic and harsh history!

Please only go forward, not back.

I worry for my children and future generations.

Sobbing, losing hope with each act of terror.

As I watch this world becoming one of hate and destruction,

I feel defeated.

Filled with sadness,

I still love.

But is it enough?

You ask for my Darkness

That which devours my soul

But do you have the strength to bare

What hides in this Cold

Layers

Upon Layers

Of lies that I’ve told

Protecting the truth of what

Feeds here and grows

Would you thrust your own light

Into the Void that is mine

Or try to Retreat

From the Secrets you find

And what if

You become

The Haunted One

Your own light dimmed down by

My monstrous one

What if the Whispers from

My darkest part

Are as knives that pierce through

Your beating heart

Words into Weapons

To rip you apart

You ask for my Darkness yet

The cost is severe

You must give up your Light

To See

What lurks here
