Concrete wall

Concrete wall


The once bright candle flickers dim
The white wax melts deep red
The dawning of the suffering
The non-stop fear and dread
As love of life rescinds all hope
Where thought becomes a crime
The avenues now alleyways
The backwards fall of time
As souls on souls are beckoning
Their arms outstretched in pain
While metal angels fly the sky
Let’s pray they come again
As concrete walls obey the whip
Machine guns judge the blame
Where women cower from the hate
The sadness and the shame
