Time by T-AlNajjar

There’s this darkness inside us all
Inching day by, rising closer to the surface
Murky thoughts brewing beneath gaunt stares
Eruptions oozing menace and disdain

We are not who they claim we are
An arsenal of blank souls echoed by blank hearts
Inverted smiles sewn onto sallow cheeks
Tricking the innocent to come near
Savagely ripping apart their hopes and dreams

Fear not oh little one
One day you shall see
Red riding hood experienced the world’s truth

Never second guess what’s in front of you
Only you can make sense of your reality

Minutes will fade into hours, and hours into days
And once everything becomes clearer
Never turn away
