In His Mind

He’s hiding in the dark shadow
Alone where none dare look or see
The fear that holds his soul below
His eyes can’t see how it should be

The only voice, the voice of hate
A loathing that lives in his mind
While piety leads him to fate
His own heart he can never find

So many questions he can’t ask
And life lies broken at his feet
Alone he cannot meet the task
Destiny remains incomplete
