Birth pangs of a new era
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;
amidst the shadows of death
all because he dared to be different.
