The world has

Failed to be

A safe place

It’s innocence lost

Replaced instead with

Selfishness and despair

A barren place

Occupied by the

Damned who wander

Aimlessly ignorantly and

Painfully absent of

Even fond memories

Husks of what

They once were

Simply coldly forgotten

Content instead of

Heaping noxious travesties

Designed to fuel

Their flames of

Hopelessness upon the

Living that have

Barricaded themselves behind

The ever eroding

Walls of hope

Fear not being

One of the

Damned for those

Devastated souls do

Not read poetry
