The Afflictions I have witnessed has me on edge,
with a memory of a nightmare, a nightmare I blend,
in with realism though I’ve chizzled the dreams in which I web.
Where can I catch the falling hearts to help me make amends,
Learning forgiveness , holding on to the climate, til its ready to Reign.
The absent minded take the lead, driven blinded by what they don’t need,
Zealous query for themselves , endless worry on everyone else.
I see things different light towards the dark, culture creator I make it with my heart.
