Suffocation of Hope, a poem by Robert A Sieczkiewicz


Alegoria Nadziei, Kazimierz Wojniakowski (1822)

Suffocation of Hope, Robert A Sieczkiewicz

All aimlessly talking with none to hear,
Laying baseless claims without any fear.
Willing to strike thy neighbor who is near,
No remorse not even a moral tear.

Brother to brother deeply divided.
The heart of many by cancer blighted.
Shortly hypocrisy to be knighted.
Yield way to evil gleefully boasted.

There must be a way of turning the tide.
Those chose to shepherd did nothing but lied,
Not to be found for in darkness they hide,
Yet asking their sheep by rules to abide.

Courage fell coming down perilous slope,
Is there a glint of light to give us hope?
