Theater of Shadows


Once I knew

there was a world

hidden from view,

nothing sustained my desire

from seeking the truth,


...Atop the world

lies a hidden agenda

above a pyramid of majesty

illuminating the forbearance

of truth,


Love is lost

and kept under shades,

for the keeper holds

the fate of the world

in two columns of pain

and hate,


Dark secrets cascade

into the thoughts of men,

...for the perpetual fade

of consciousness


awakens the new world order, the inevitable seizes

the prophesy aforementioned...


An evil awakens

at the divide,

as the doors of normalcy

catacomb the endeavoring loss

of righteousness,

prevailing the doom that follows

to no avail,


Racial injustices

and disease run riot,

as an autonomous voice

lingers within the deserted streets

of reason

proclaimed by fear,...


The 13 families hoist

our lives

as a sacrifice to their god,

for the media echoes

the limelight of our past

heralding an emblem of charity

as a facade of truth,


Stillborn from birth,

we never cared

who governed our lives

as long as we were comforted

and kept from the right,...


And now

we are far from the light,

as the night portals us

into an unknown reality

of horrors...


On the threshold

of madness,

We are on the verge of change,


In the ascension

of evil,

Good will always find a way to win...


For these are trials

of the faith,

And those who endure shall find peace...
