Through the Silver Lining
Beginnings

To yearn is but to anguish

Through the time and space of a life.

With hearts committed to beating

While mind’s defend their plight

 

In Time

I see

things.

The future.

Vividly.

Projections of possibilities.

My mind always awake with these images.

Cities fall. We run, we run. Nowhere to go.

We grieve, we grieve, for loved ones gone.

We walk, we walk, away from it all

Tears, tears, in the dust.

Nightfall. Screams.

Screams in the dark. Shrill, shrieks of death, panic.

Fear. We fear it all. It drives us, drives us…

light.

light in the distance.

We walk, walk, toward nothing at all.

We watch, watch, the silence

the wind, the trees awaken now

curiosity piques their interest

they stare, they stare, hatefully

You. You. They

Hate you.

Move, move away, you move away

quickly.

Run, run, now you always run,

hunger,

hunger stops you.

Night falls. Screams.

Screams in the dark. Shrill, shrieks of death, panic.

Fear. You fear it all. It drives you, drives you…

light.

light in the distance.

You walk, walk, toward nothing at all.

Pang, pang, hunger pangs, thirst

thirst, you’re dieing now

blur, blur, it’s all a blur

eyes, eyes, the trees they see

you walking, walking, they see me

wicked, vengeful smiles they flash

waiting, waiting, for the crash

stumble, stumble, stumble, stand

I stare into forgotten lands

Alone, alone, all alone,

wilds reclaiming their own

Night. Silence.

Silence in the dark. Quiet, calm, still, panic.

Fear. You fear it all. It drives you, drives you…

to the ground.
