Today



Pointless to fill the holes of loss
eternal are the holes
Everlasting the hold of the scars on your heart
accomplishments useless
dieties dead
gone is the time of peace
war is the hour
death by the minute
mankind the carriers
foolish the lot
blasting away at each other
ignorant and distraught
forgetting words of mother
destroying her purity long ago
drifting away from remains
believing its rightous
hell is all i say
because its today
