Fighting with shadows,
No warriors slain, no victories gained,
Nesting sorrows in a broken home,
Life drinks from an empty sea,
Salt from the eyes, stuck in the throat,
Veins crawling out, reaching the skies,
on broken slates childhood cries,
sailing the sea skies on plastic wings
forgotten, one's own origins,
nautilus abandoned, names found,
captains slain, stories forged
love songs and battle cries,
dies before the echoes hit,
the light is out, sky is red
And the shadows win all the wars.
