Lost Essence

Rushed by thoughts

An unusual transformation of the mind

Galloping with nascent energy

Funnelled before they can escape

Through the narrowness

Every idea becomes future’s nemesis

Receives critical acclaim from ignorance

Decisions of yesteryear

Serves similar purpose of maligning 

Right does not stand firmly

Their weakness bends the spine

Feeble voices unworthy of protests

Long arms of ignorance

Confines the heart in a quandary

Time is ashamed

Diluted in essence among existence
