Shunned

Birth pangs of a new era
erupt violently,
no longer acknowledged
by the one who lays naked
upon the darkness.

Soul fasting with anguish
allowing heavy thoughts to carry on
towards iniquitous perceptions;
cultivated from the depths of hearsay.

Burying beliefs deep within
the dissipated center of unconscious desires.

Mind craving acceptance,
body endures brutal rejection;
spirit forsaken
amidst the shadows of death
all because he dared to be different.
