Across The Anarchist Sky
Whispers come from within
the darkened shadows
replete with the framework of misery
from a hangman's gallows.
A full moon approaches fast
across an anarchist sky,
With brave men giving,
And only God willing,
No more will face,
This silent disgrace
For it is said,
Of both the living and dead,
That old journeys must end,
for new ones to begin.
So, go I,
Across this anarchist sky
Chasing the rising moon
To darkest sea,
Resting in peace
Upon the shore
Of my complacency.
Cannot halt the hangman's rope,
Nor can I still the slide of mankind,
Down life's evil and slippery slope.
For I have toiled a lifetime of worry,
Only to realize,
That all fades to black,
That all will die,
And that all
Into times eternal, crack.
So, go I
into the anarchist sky.

|For I have toiled a lifetime of worry,
Only to realize,
That all fades to black
but in the meantime...so much color

|Allen, this is an absolutely soul-ripping, teeth-clenching, heart-stopping powerful write! Your natural ability to harness the written word and guide your admirers, which I am privileged to be one, is a shining testament to your overall poetic genius. I have always left your remarkable Den a changed individual. For that I am extremely grateful to you my gifted friend. Thank you for sharing your timeless work. Take care and be well.|

So full of desperation, a very sombre write, although you pen these so well. There is always so much hope and so much to look forward to. Never just look at the gloom and doom, find the beauty within these factors. Well penned Allen.
