In The Hanging Garden (January 28, 2018)

Casted adrift
Into a sea of darkness
Without any sense of direction
Or reason
Why.

Searching for a past
Long buried
In hate and ignorance
Of being different.

A minority sublimated
By the majority
Without questioning
Why.

Lost of self-identity
Imposed denial
Cultural genocide
That consumes
One's soul.

Regardless
Of one's inner strength
No one is asking
Why.

Where death is
Often seen
As the only solution
For life's injustices.

And yet
Are reluctant to change
Without wondering
Why.

Where one's greed
And self-agenda
Are often measured
In the lives lost.
