brave new world*



my heart declared war  
conquered edicts in my head  
now I cannot think; † †

nor is there escape †
such feelings that occupy  
the space logic lived;  

and if Iím honest  
because itís what matters most †
thoughts can destroy Trust; †

so my heart brought home  
all survivors of this war  
refugees of doubt;  

a vast exodus  
relinquishing all theyíve known  
to this brave new world.
