A sunset orb quits and descends
A sullen night appears.
Pull down the blinds and lock your doors
Protect your rabid fears.

Uncertainty engulfs the world,
and it’s reduced to tears.
As dark as once upon a time
prevails throughout the years.

Sometimes the world make me sad 😦


From the Inside

From the inside she noticed
a huddle of small boys
hoping to receive some scraps.
“The poor surely deserve more”,
she remarked over a delectable dinner.
