Losing Hopes To Despair: Thus Passes A Lifetime


Losing Hopes To Despair: Thus Passes A Lifetime 

by: Francesca Seopa

There’s a battle being fought behind the curtain

An enemy awaits me, on that I’m certain

There are blows being thrown where I’m out of sight

But my armour awaits the evil that lurks with night

Cuddled in my manner of ancient darkness

Puzzled at the thought of a destructive kindness

It is orion that has lead me here

One that bears the tales of mysteries found at Giza

Vanity it might’ve been

A route embedded in my own imagination is one I could’ve seen

Insanity is what i feel;

A bot of maturity is what you’ll need to heal

It’s the voice;

The voice, the voice that made me believe there lives a choice between the paths of emotion and reason.

Yes indeed it was the voice

That drew my devotion and blinded my senses from the sins of the seasons.

Embraced by the orbits of overturned obscurities;

Anger,Hate,Regret, Resentment, Anxiety,Betrayal and oh yes Fear

Fear is He who’s battle triumphs I hear the most

There’s a battle being fought behind the curtain

The weapons are drawn

As the horn is blown

The horn is blown

And the weapons are drawn

My courage cuddles in a corner

Questioning why it was summoned

Anger raises a flag of cowardice

Hate awakens social exile

Fear chooses to run that extra mile

Exhausted by distress

What they think I could careless

A river cried full of tears

A youth filtered no sign of peers

An enemy awaits me


The horn is blown

With sounds that signal sympathy

A war-cry is heard

Adrenaline is endured

The thunder of drums drilling devotion

I collect the scattered corners and cuts of my uniformly colored collage of sorrow

As I seek to approach the curtain

Coiled in curiosity

Cautioned by the confusion of what may arise

Visions at a flashing rate


I’ve had it with lies let whatever it is be a surprise

Trapped in the muds of truth

Cautiously analyzing the buts of previous burns.

A battle is fought behind the curtain

An enemy awaits me on that I’m certain.

Thank you for being with me. I look forward to seeing you here soon. Let us rebuild a healthy state of mind.
