listen to the world gone shallow
spirit is hunted as well haunted
dreams that soared are now sour
weeds take over reason tenuously
clamouring to get a hold, thriving
in the aftermath. thorns of combat
pierce all but the one who started it
closing his eyes, he refuses to budge.
“war goes on, it has from time immemorial”
