Akrion Poetry

The Main Purpose

There are sins which are unpaid
Beauty we left to fade
Anger we fuel to burn
Lessons we failed to learn

There are lies to which we pray
Trust they can’t repay
Hopes we wish are true
Lives they can’t renew

There are dreams we let astray
Names they pushed away
Friends we did forget
Guilt we can’t regret

There is love we blindly follow
The harvester of sorrow
With minds so full of pride
And hollow hearts inside

There are those who promised all
As others did before their fall
Who paint their lies as truths again
And strap their chains on all of men

And then we wish the life of others
Just the same as our fathers
And swim in seas of hate and lust
And dive in graves of rust and dust

And time seems like its standing still
As they scream “We can! … and will!”
We failed again to learn the tale
For their purpose always is: to fail
