Tyranny

What anger arises when I hear
Of abuse from someone dear
The feelings of hope that are squelched
By some self-centered asinine self

What wrongs do the innocent do
That makes it ok for you
To torment and dowse their hopes
To bind them with controlling ropes

What a great person you must be
To feel good by tormenting the meek
To prey upon the innocence and good
That do the deeds as they should

I turn to the heavens and ask
God why does this have to last
Strike the tyranny from their lives
They have dealt with enough strife

Happiness prevails after the storm
A home returned to loving and warmth
This shelter has a home become
To the those who are spiritual ones.
