Empty of Heart – Poetry

Empty of Heart

Empty of heart is he that states
That he will but does not

Church and state will rebuild
The Earth and take what they killed
Rebirth a clone of man’s will and
Worse claim that it’s real and
Works but only until it works

Then maybe the cycle will end
When the lust to take lose retake
And claim dominion fades

Maybe something better begins
When the greed consumes itself
And the sheep seek better ways

Instead of simply hoping to see better days

But what calls men to action
What must be lost before they rise
And take their satisfaction
Which faction dies before the lies
Are seen as manufactured

That is to say, where is the brave
To take the initial pain
That incites that initial rage

About Empty of Heart

While short, I was always a fan of this particular piece of poetry —
Here’s a mix that my good friend Zapruder Film made of it – I consider it as a part of an initiative I call SilentFilm (it’s kind of on hiatus at the moment)
