“Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place.” -Kurt Vonnegut


As life begins
to crumble
the world starts
to rumble.
Malice lashes at
you
Zeus's rage
confronts you
Envy transform you
...into a monster
of you petrified being
The world released
into pandamonium
set spinning
into the deadly
grasps of each
deadly sin...
Envy
Greed
Lust
Gluttony
Pride
Wrath
Sloth
Tainting our
world
Darkness keeps falling
Sorrow starts
living
Pandora's box
keeps opening
Foolishness
and curosity
took control
and each evil
took over the
Four winds
blowing
whistling
moaning
like misguided
ghosts
that will never go away
This darkness will always
linger
with a small candle
shining bright throughout
everything
this
small flame
is
Hope.
