her eyes of determination-
imprinted in your soul

smiling with intent
(this world, will never
change- for you)
so then let this mask,
drained of tears
&become the you of tomorrow

back then, the vision of purity
was blurred
and now, blackened-

"absolute power corrupts absolutely"

without the hesitation,
each to their own
turning the page into the next
(do you still remember... her smile)

like the darkening prayer
held by pale hands-

a different story
an alternative ending
we are moving forward,
you & i

(do you still remember the face behind this mask...?)
