Shadow Sunset - Poem by Andrew Alexander

I walk upon the hills of shame and disgrace
I walk toward the dark sun and the broken sky.
I will no longer hold on to this severed tie.
Why should I hold on to a decaying lie?

I let the glowing stars guide me to my destined place.
Nothing in this world can halt my constant pace.
I’ll be resilient and forever hold my broken ground.
The beating of my torn heart will become the echoing sound.

The world’s insolence and thoughts are not the reason.
I am not a soldier deserting or committing treason.
There is only one reason for why I walk away.
All that I truly desire is to seek a new day.

As I sit on top of the mountain of despair and watch the sun go down.
I stare without emotion and without a frown.
I stared at the line where the shining sun and the cracked sky must meet.
For nothing burns brighter, than the shadow sunset’s heat.
