Night Terror

Waking slick with sweat
Another night terror event
Shivering for a bit
No reprieve from it
As the world burns
And people take turns
Society is unravelling
Victims of extremism
While the ghosts roam
Voices continue to drone
Dreams have been lost for good
As has the innocent blood
Trapped within a glass cage
There is no fresh page
Locked deep within the pit
Not even a chance to change it
But still we risk sleep
Even though it makes us weep
Slipping further from the path
Righteousness is in the past
While we toss and turn to win
One day we will fall to sin
As the nightmares rage on
We’re losing all that we should’ve become
Then one day we will not wake
Another victim of the terrors that wait
