plunge me deeper into darkness,
deeper into the pit of ignorance,
ignorance of the very soul that makes me

driven by desires unconsciously sown in me.

A very strong panorama you presented us with! In life, we all go through similar experiences and we all find the ways to move on and do something for ourselves and our countries! We are the only hope, especially when we are young! 10+++ Keep it up! You have a great poetic talent! Love and Peace for always! Romeo from New York City!
