The urban sky covered with metal

The tall buildings did rise

To touch the clouds and brilliant sun

To see with shadowed eyes

I walk through an empty city

To see where the people have gone

What were their dreams, their hopes, their fears

And why have they moved on?

A city of broken hearts, I see

A metropolis of pain

To those who gave their souls away

Beneath a shattered rain

There was no joy in these fair skies

There was no peace existing

The souls were dragged to the gate of pain

Constantly resisting

And in the fog that's plagues the air

Are dreams forever broken

And millions of words floating about

Forever left unspoken.

May your stories be heard, mindful scribes

May your messages come alive.
