Outliving the Nightmare!

They moved, dream in
Their eyes.

The world around with
Reptile eyes observed

Threatening to devour
The dream

Serpentine desire winding
Up the spine of the
Wretched few, attempting
To derail life…

But they held on to
The dream

And we vow with them
To usher in a new world…

A new day will dawn
And all the darkness,
All the decay will
Be a thing of the past,
A nightmare we will outlive!
