Dark World

We squirm through this dark world
In our mass of millions
But we crawl alone,
Hearts weighed down with our emotions
That only we as individuals can understand.

Eaten up by this twisted planet
Writhing in our human pain and self-pity.
Time flies past – the bringer of destruction,
Leaving us quivering in its path.

From birth to death - our only destination
Caught in our own never-ending cycle.
Stuck on a world heading towards extinction
Only darkness will remain.
