Idle within emptiness, Disappointment fills the air, A chilling wind of harshness, Sweeping seasons of despair!
Fingernails bitter purple, A tousle of shredded hair, Weakened limbs and fragile nerves And dreams strangled to disrepair!
How long ’till the sun comes out? Forever must still be there, Without the light all things fade, Darkness makes them disappear!
A burning torch within me: Faith, the everlasting flair Scorching both sense and reason, Too blind to show heaven is near!
