Sometimes… You’re sure of your brilliance,

scintillating wisdom obvious.

and you realize yourself an empty vessel,

drained by drudgery,

as you grope in the dark,

Sova i Luna

Hiroshima Shadow 2

He greeted them pleasantly,

rudely, they ignored.

It rings so fucking hollow,

why would I choose to follow

your banal cacophony

into the abyss?

and choose my own,

nobler way,

I try,

I strive,

I hope,

enlightenment.
