(Haven of Peace)
I travel alone down a tear-filled street
Where endangered happiness is haunted by the undying evil
Of a fast-paced demonic world. I walked
Past an avenue called Despair that pulled on me
With such enticement only energized by
The darkness of a sorrow-filled sky until
I arrived at a place where candles warm the
Hearts of lost souls. This haven was
Sanctuary to the light of a thousand morning stars
Ready to break the restraints off enslaved humanity.
Peace fell upon me in the presence of that morn but,
Alas, a new day rises to diminish the night and
I must return to that road called Life.
