Overwhelming emotions take hold
These never-ending days – nights
Suffocating the core of existence
Trapped by the hands of insanity

Silenced tears befall the soul
Gazing into the imagery of decay
Beyond the power to control
Following the path of empathy

Drained be all the serenity within
Numb, a hallow shell one becomes
Finding the strength here – there
Even as the fates, conspire endlessly

The ultimate challenge unto oneself
Grasping onto hope of better days
Captured in the arms of the beloved
Stripping away all the sorrow within

Now deeply rooted inside the heart
As the infernal merry-go-round
Spins and spins, spiraling down
Upon trial and tribulations of life

At the hands of mercy – forgiveness
The mother now becomes the child
Robotic movements – a mere puppet
Ruled by the twisted call of destiny

Patience, the key to endurance
Even in the retreat of silence
Be there no provisos to define
The horror engraved in mind
