Agony


Tempted and tried we often wander,
How life has given us agonizing pains,
Raging war on every unconquered shore,
Unquenched flame burning a fire within,

Agony light up the soul with a bewildered glow,
Tattered lives mirror the inevitable existence,
Of hopeless demise into confuse sorrow,
Pushing emotions to the edge of tolerance.

Through sapping energy the sweat descend,
Purge the heart consume with agonized flames,
Separating the language of friends,
With blistering tragedy hope begins.

Detoxify poison in the body driven to the core,
People try every way to avoid temptation,
Suffocating beneath the consequences implore,
The conscience is a lively fire within.

Bunning flames take earth out of control,
Every person's future is in purgatory,
Spirits fight to capture the tormented soul,
Walking the timeless realms into eternity.

The rhapsody of agony encamp in the heart
The light of happiness waiting at the door
To unveil the anguish truth will impart
With many more choices to discover

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
