Beneath Setting Suns - Poem by Hasan Haskovic
This world, fuel for nightmares
Rid of romance, rid of condolences
Drove us off the brink
Broke or spines and left us with disbelief
How much further will we sink?
How many days will pass
Beneath these skies of breaking glass
Before insanity claims us?
Before we adopt insanity?
The momentum of our broken dreams
Flung stars across the sky
Striving to break the horizon
And leave the world to flame
So that we may leave our lonely quoin
And walk through the fiery lane
So we may walk the day and look upon the Heavens
As we leave behind what will never be the same
But that's just a mild vision, a dream
That may never come true
As we still live as people draw vigor
From our broken gleam
Bearing the cross of our own anguish
Coloring the skies in grey
We will self inflict our pain
So others won't have to
Never love so that we never have to hate
And live in wonderment, in kindness
My dear friend, let us set the skies on fire
Let us paint the world in black
And head towards where we aspire
Let us walk with no fear or dishonesty
Let us touch the stars on the apex of the world
Let us see the bourn of our torment
Let us walk beneath setting Suns
Poet's Notes about The Poem
Maybe it's just a dream. Maybe one day we'll wake up and see everything the way we want it to be. But at least we have this. At least we have honesty.
