Favorite Quote:
"On him does death lie heavily, who, but too well known to all, dies to himself unknown."
-Seneca the Younger

Lurking shadows move as thieves
Cat’s screeches break like glass
Life is born in fire
Sweet, but cruel desire
The midnight sun shines on her face
And the children run and hide
They fear what will happen
They all fear the end
And while the madness goes
I stand on my toes
The world moves on
Just fine
Without me

The author's comments:
This is about a place being attacked by an enemy during a large war, and the person telling it is so tired of fighting, that they're just fine with dying.
