May the Wolf and Raven Spirits Guide you on your journey.

why the roses cried

who does what
isn’t exactly clear
some lived some died
leaving survivors stranded
do we bury the dead
or do they bury us

do we manage to get by
or do we go out of our heads
turmoil offing inner peace
remembering what
we can’t forget
the deadliest of wars
human being hunted spirit
world being treated wrong
hypocrisy evading right
smothering our will
greed firing up
industrial passions
where we even
lie to ourselves

illusions lies building walls
keeping us out of sight
living the life we try to hide
some lived some died
some don’t even know what happened
