The Waking Hour (Version 3 - Revision)

A Poem by B-poet


The Waking Hour

Is an alibi

To cope with lost regrets

That pierce the soul

With each and every step taken

A last breath

Could relinquish a proposed safe haven

If The Waking Hour

Came like a thief in the night

Disguised as Satan

Who's deemed be a soul taker

A well endowed saint

Could now be seen as patron

In the eyes of a world filled with bigamy and hatred

Willfully created
Would be the only
Weapon needed  
For The Waking Hour 
Red flags within the minds 
Of every Waking follower
Would remain the only
Alarm clocks left for saving 
One another from an untimely
Dormant spiritual slaughter
That's yet to become 
Visually evident & yet undone
