Still Blank..... (revised)

   
  †
In case the visual isn't legible.... †  
† †
†  
My heart & mind can hastily create confinement † †
Like stone & brick piled high †† † †
Pain safely planted within towering castles††† † †
†††† † †
As I'm left with these mere antiquated memories † †
The dust of once bright embers † †
Now, just simply a story of nostalgic shambles†† † †
† †
For a grandiose purpose, I continue to search††††† † †
Since an identity, long ago, vanquished†††††† † My dreams seized from the happiest of chapters††† † †
††††††† † †
Years continue to pass, as I still come up blank † †
Although fleeting goals do beckon† † †
My creation was only borne of one to save animals †  
† †

"I looked at all the caged animals. . . . . . . the cast-offs of human society. I saw in their eyes love and hope, fear and dread, sadness and betrayal. And I was angry.

"God," I said, "this is terrible! Why don't you do something?" †
† † † ††
God was silent for a moment and then He spoke softly. † † † ††
† † † ††
"I have done something. . . † † † ††
I created you." † † † †
