Children of Annihilation

memories_left_abandoned_by_99shadows-d5zzb8mProduct of a bleeding nation
The Children of Annihilation
Their minds confused, their spirits low
As they search for their salvation

Soldiers bear their battle scars
Speak softly of forgotten wars
While leaders laugh and strike their deals
The soldiers wish on fallen stars

A baby’s birth, an old man’s death
One meets earth, one takes a breath
One lays at rest, his journey complete
The other’s barely started yet

The Children of Annihilation
The future of this dying nation
Can’t we lend a guiding hand
To lead them on to their salvation?…
