Apocalypse

Interrogations of a stigma
Carnal based illusions of our sight
Human conditions
Default settings of sandcastle shelters
Every moment is our waking means to an inevitable end
Under the right wrong circumstances everyone is unstable
When true colors show
Beneath the pigments of the way we paint ourselves
Will we find ourselves with authentic hearts of gold
Or just pyrite fabrications of our best intentions
That never saw true worth?
How do you cope in the face of trauma?
When the tension builds and lashing out is second nature
Hearts like weapons and words like ammunition
Making friendly fire of secrets when our scars are easy targets
Can anyone be well when your perception is everyone's sick?
Can loved ones be safe when everyone's presumed a threat?
Panhandling God for postdated miracles
Choking on hopelessness
Honesty is staggering to high horse confessions
When words are spoken without conviction
Encouragement feels like a lie in waiting
Till disappointed expectations find
The world is on fire...
