Only Mercy


in this cruel world
lives don’t seem to matter.
Hearts can be easily broken
while evil crushes lost hopes.
And through it all it seems,
the guilty thrive in a world
where it seems there is
no justice.


Yet wait,
there are those

who rise from the masses
of indifference, greed and pride.
To make that awaited final stand
when hope seems eternally lost.
And when the dark approaches,
the light will shine forever

only mercy.
