Poetry & Songs:
Erasing the Future
By: Arjan Wardekker

Standing in the stars' flickering light.
It was not in your arms, that I just died.
Reflections of the vanished fire.
When the pain's so dire.

The endless flow of time has blinded me.
I cannot see the future there to be.
The future is erased before my eyes.
And no one hears my futile cries.

A full moon will rise again tonight.
Shall it bode the end of this fight?
Now religion's dead.
Shall I live instead?

I can't see the future anymore.
Erased to the core.
I'm blinded by the doubt and silence,
the unseen violence.
