People living like loose flies,
All traveling towards demise.
Restrictions working to protect ties,
And bring trouble under spotless skies.

Dreamful experiences capturing
Overwhelming freedom and desire,
Move with passion for greater good,
Yield as products of faith in truth.

Listen to your heart,
Insist on helping others,
Follow the right lead,
Even throughout troubles.

The author's comments:

Back Story: This poem is mostly about my own life experiences and my vision on how to flee the hostility of reality. It is my simple, yet core opinion of religion and its impact upon any individual. First stanza somewhat describes how the situation was like in Ukraine (my homeland), while the second and third shifts to the aspects that helped me escape a horrible outcome - always aiming for goodness and having trust in God.
