I place no faith in words.

They are ever-changing, not everlasting.

They move with the seasons

And change with the weather.

They give praise to the face

Of the head that they sever.

I place no faith in actions.

I shall take no part in this play's casting.

Those that act are but mere actors.

All are players upon a stage

Who shed tears upon direction.

There is no reality under the facade.

Yet, I do place my faith in silence.

I believe in solitude.

'Tis what lasts when vows are broken

And when actions are false proved.

As the seasons change,

Clouds may, at times, obscure the sun's bright light.

Yet the only constant that remains

Is the descent of a desolate night.
