Slipping Softly Away


In the gathering storm

of earthly mortality,

I am drip, dripping away.

In the scorching heat

of senseless brutality

I am melting sadly away.

The salty tears of my fleshly eyes

Swell the burden of my soul;

With every step humanity dies

From wounds of its own insanity.

All the towers of excess material gain;

The flowering pleasure of decadent lives,

Built so soundly on another person’s pain;

Paid for dearly with the innocent’s blood.

In the dark night

of this time bound age,

I am slipping softly away.
