A tear fights his way through desolation

a tear fights his way through desolation
the purple summer flower is snapped
hope expired to memorial
green fields are hermetically sealed

mud splashes fouling soft cheeks
the worst in humanity has been reached
childhood dreams buried by cruelty
salt burns painful in bleeding wounds

monsters shuffling around
nailing hard steel in bare walls
behind the scenes reigns vipers
ruthless sounds die away in the cosmos
