When Hope Dies

When Hope Dies

Apathy, gloom,
Spell doom

Of murdered innocence,
Of life’s evanescence,
An evil dominance. 

A nation demolished, cataclysmal 
Attacks and wounds, visceral.
Patriarchy, anarchy metastasizes, dismal
Future in statis, abysmal. 

They weep, with bloody eyes,
Scratching the promises and lies,
Strangled amidst the diplomatic ties. 
A shroud darkens the skies,
Painted red, when hope dies.
