Voice

I have lost my voice

Not from shouting too loud

Or talking too much

Nor from singing or chanting 

From weariness and fatigue 

Trying to make sense of it all

Weary of a world where chaos rules

Finding it hard to envisage a future of harmony and calm

Too tired to raise a sound in opposition of all going on

Rest is now the priority of these times

Relief only being provided when the night time bell chimes

Brad Pitt how you make the ladies hearts flutter
You ended up in the gutter with a gun to your head
Dumped Jennifer Anniston and chose Angelia Jolie instead
Threads
Of evidence poured over by Morgan Freeman
Detective Somerset by name
A role bringing about critical approval and fame
Kevin Spacey playing the part of John Doe
Determined to turn his life into a horror show
Dante outlined the seven deadly sins
Each one found in Hell formed in separate
rings
So be good now and chose carefully the life you lead
The last place you want to end up is in Inferno Where all you will hear is cries and screams
pleading to be freed
