“ They Walk Alone ”

             – in a faceless world –                

 They walk alone
 On crowded streets,
 These vacant beings 
 Suffering defeat,
 Trudging on feelings
 Found bittersweet,
 Despite bewilderment
 Held negated souls,
 In constant lament 
 For the cadence holds,
 The bulk of a life spent
 On their weary feet,
 As human refuse 
 On a deathly beat, 
 Who seek refuge
 In a mingy world replete…  

 Routed in despair
 Most lay in wait,
 For their decay
 To transfer hells, 
 While with false hope
 These human shells, 
 Pray fate awakes
 Would thus impel,
 And so reach out       
 Hence fore too late,                                                                                 
 When they’ll arrived
 At fated final hell,                                                     
 Yet so to walk alone
 Thus in a faceless world!   

                 A nudge on today’s world...

“ They Walk Alone ” ~ in a deathlike beat ~

 

They walk alone

On crowded streets

Of vacant beings,

Human refuse

On weary feet,

Move to the rhythm

Of a deathlike beat,

Hopeless mortals

Search for refuge

On a road lost,

In a faceless world…

 

Most lay in wait

For their decay

To transfer hells,

While in false hope

These human shells

Pray fate awakes,

To so impel

Their fellow man

Extend a hand,

Before too late

When in a final hell,

They forever walk alone!
