Where Has The Sweetness Gone

Sweetness and softness were old friends seldom heard from

The grit of tough and nails drum

Our skulls

Our hearts

Our minds

The sound won’t stop as we continue on

As we commit con after con

The world won’t let us stop

It uses us in constant as a prop

Until we can hardly help but drop

The softness isn’t here in this violent place

The sweetness has vanished without a trace

I can’t handle a world of stones

Where it breaks me down to my bones

The people yell

My petrified face is a tell

Welcome to hell

They chant my name

I stay the same

But the blame is on me

Why can’t they see I’m trying

The softness has vanished

The splendour left long ago

Where has the sweetness gone?
