Evildoers

 

 

As long as freedom

was a possibility of choice,

I felt happy.

 

And now? What is it?

 

Millions,

once free people

disappear, must hide,

because someone gave the order:

 

Exterminate!

 

I will not stand for annihilation.

In spite of the Evildoers

someone will remain!

Some under the floor,

others in the attic,

or

to survive

they will adopt a mask.

 

Later

free again

we will show the world

how strong we are.

 

 

 

 

 

Hallucinations

 

 

I do not remember myself from yesterday.

Maybe some demon swirled in the mind?

Maybe

the past of those such as I

does not exist at all?

 

We were created

to hide our origin

from serial killers.

And at night

hidden

in the moonlight

we feed ourselves with hallucinations.
