Euphoria and ecstasy
Did always emanate
Emitted from a treasured source
At such an endless rate

Augmenting happiness around
Pandora's Box, unopened
Assurance seeping through the ground
With solace never broken

Time strolled along so gracefully
Her touch, inimical
The pandemonium plagued all
Death came, armed with sickle

The expiry of jubilance
Bereavement of delight
The rise of anguish, agony
Ignition of the plight

Antagonism, hatred, wrath
Emotions made so livid
Yet, somehow hope and faith remained
So little, though so vivid

Ambivalence reigns everywhere
Resentment is now dwelling
The fervent rage is caged inside
Continuously swelling
