Hopeful

It stands in the darkness of a dank, demonic wood.
It does not move, though it knows it should.
Vines grip up its aging sides.
It has gouges and scratches in which animals do hide.
Its sickly twisted arms reach out,
Yelling out in silence for help.
And through the dense atmosphere above,
Streams a little ray of joy and love.
There is hope for this mad, disturbed face,
To put an end to the deranged race.

The imagery in this poem is spectacular. It seets the mood of the poem quite well, and it allows the reader to easily picture the scene.
