Prompted Writing: Mudvayne's World So Cold

This is a two for the price of one deal!
A write one, get one free if you will.
My DWP prompt for today was The Random CD Prompt. The next thing you hear on the radio, Whammo! That's it your stuck with the first line of the lyrics!
And I also wanted to write something for the Easter Holiday...
So I slammed um together and this is what you've got!

When passions lost

And all the trust is gone

The children pay the cost

Becoming more withdrawn


Retreating from reality

In an attempt to ignore

All the acts of brutality

They can’t escape anymore


The despondent grow weak

As they lock their hopes away

Our outlook turns bleak

And we watch the world decay


You simply must believe my dear

Faith is what you need to show

Then the hidden pathways clear

And all at once you will know


All is not as it might seem

So pray in earnest for the dawn

The one who reigns supreme

Promised to help you carry on


Listen for the angel’s voice

Ring out above the fray

Let us all rejoice because

Christ has shown the way


         Happy Easter


To all those of other faiths,

   Have a great weekend.  

The End
