Among the Ashes



Among the ashes, tears do flow

to build foundations strong from fear

binding threads, behind masks no

more, the count down, has just



While darkness seeps through hearts

of doubt, the land cries from thirst and

shame, why men had to make their mark

across the universal plain.


Where shadows fall on misty nights

dawn hides away what can't be found

thorns never seen, must bleed away

tears that fall upon deceit.


The truth may be a passing thing, while

silent whispers hit sharp like thunder

among the ashes of time, watching

a world distorted, a world we lost

a world of ashes known as history.


Though bleakness draws its final

breath, life flows faster yet, to settle

down across the land, of false

illusions ending in pain, among

the ashes of yesterday.
