"You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams." - Dr. Seuss

A time for shadow, anguish, more so, fear
Latter laid waste upon God’s insignificant humanity
The backdrop full for flooding of tears
Droughts of amour followed by waves of torrential vanity

Blades of the Earth, imbued with dancing flame
Searing scars from Hell like the dreams of a Daemon
The envy of neighbors is a binding, wrought chain
Together, we struggle and drown in Man’s freedom

As harmless as a cancer, the growing of coals
Breathe a flickering life into shells deep in the soil
Whispers of departed lead to roaring of souls
And the pithos of Pandora adds more to our toil

In dawning of dusk, where love roosts in the brain
The stalwartly chorus holds unending refrain

The author's comments:
This is in the style of the Shakespearean sonnet. In the cold, harsh world is a small hope that we could all unite and live in peace. There would be no more wars, no more disease, no more conflict. In times of strife, the small ray that is compassion is what keeps us moving.
