Inner Battles

Inner battles. Mental doubts.
Equations that can't measure out
a life that's laced with pain and vanity.
Keeping up the habits of insanity.
Leashing all their power in the hours
that they rush to be rid of. The scholars
have been granted boring jobs. While
athletes claim the highlights on the news
each time they murder yet another
spouse - oh yes, it must be love.
To come and go and damn morality.
To cheat on sacred vows while
doing interviews that make the
evening news. Fighting off the blues
by lighting yet another fire of sacrifice.
Donating money to the diocese.
Shaking hands with politics
to keep them in their ease.
All the while, filled with inner battles,
unappeased. As their dark god
still seeks to bring them to their knees...
