Where are the rays of hope?
Things are basically going to wind up
the way we don’t expect them to
or the way we fear things might be,
and this fact is so well known
to every cell in my body;
because I can now see the big picture easily.
I can see what a town looks like
from the top of a hill;
and all I see is dark smoke rising.
Truth has defeated optimism
and it’s out in the open.
And I’m completely frustrated.
It hurts to realise
that we entrust all our faith to falsehood;
only to see in time the big picture
crashing down to the ground.
