Buried and Forgotten

This breeding ground
of resentment
has grown in width
to contain the decay
of social relations

Another verb
as fast as a bullet
Another noun
as sharp as a clever
that should have
never been spoken
The disruption of vibes
a tidal wave of emotion

This chapter
it haunts me
All I want
is to get even
The short end
of the stick
is placed
within my palm

No compromise
in hatred
I’m steadfast
in my beliefs
Scorned for my
It may be in the news
But decency is
minding your
own business
The good times
of the past are
buried and forgotten
