Brothers and Sisters

by Michael Oliwek

Clear the day is now
Gray and drab is heavy the weight
The shroud covers my bonds

Broken is the deaf rage
Silence pounds on my dark mind
Mist held back to means

Promises broken
Left to fall to the abyss
Anger builds to madness

Families broken
Lost in the honored bound
Forgotten their deeds

For those to profit
Greed paid with faithful dark blood
Soiled it the lie
