Brave Heart

Brave hearts don’t survive
The vicissitudes of dark life
Ogling in sadistic anticipation
Lips licking they wait just round the corner
Ready to pounce on unsuspecting life

Brave hearts die an easy prey
Dreaming of a better future
Always elusive, forever eluding,
Deceived, abandoned, outcaste

Yet brave hearts survive still
Dreaming, just yearning for
An impossible existence
A future never felt

Brave hearts carry on
The everlasting life
In a chimera called
Death.
