POEM: The Innocent do not Rest

The unknowing yet innocent still believe what they will.
Only the guilty understand what innocence cannot comprehend
    – mortals are we all, yet some must strive for less.

Keep the shadow a shadow only in your mind
    – refuse to look into the darkness.
Now is not the time to listen to the wind,
Omniscient is the barren broken soul that releases
With a gasping dying breath, an existence ceases

Mortal men with souls immortal are the ones that face their beasts
Eternity in darkness is the only final peace.
