Despair

Darkness...

Yes...darker than a starless night...

Where there is no moon in the sky and it's silent...

Despair comes out and does what it feels is right...

Hope can't come and interfere with our darkest night...

And if they try, despair will win the fight...

And hope will never see the light...

Throughout the lands they'll feel our pain...

And they will all cower in fear and shame...

And let the tempest of our tears come as rain...

And let darkness and despair cover the world in pain and sorrow...

The process repeats every day after tomorrow...

Until every person's heart is filled with despair and sorrow...

That is despair. That is life.

That is the life of living in despair and darkness.
