Longing Eyes, Rotting Bread

A pair of longing eyes
a piece of rotting bread
a barely living human
humanity, good as dead

a forest of trees vile
grown from a wicked seed
the light of love swallowed
by dark of lust and greed

in mirrors of truth and justice
depravity you’ll find
if only you oh humans
weren’t willingly so blind

flowing rivers and streams
of blood that is your own
are growing every day
as have your demons grown

for heavens and God you fight
then why, pray do tell
have you turned His garden
into a living hell
