In this web of freedom fading,
truths are veiled in layers
of shading; trust and love now
cards for trading, commodities
worth less than gold.

In this reign of pain and tears,
an unguarded moment
echoes for years. Sympathy sings
to deafened ears, while pride
is bought and sold.

In this land where heroes rise,
to fall defeated before
unflinching eyes; of paradise lost
beneath oceans of lies, a heart
is turning cold.

  2. I have a love-hate relationship with the internet. However, one upside of the web is that I get to read genius compositions like these which I’d never come across otherwise. Your rhymes are soo smoothly done. I’m in awe πŸ™‚
