The western wind travels to unknown lands
In unison with fleeting clouds heading east
Aspirations of man drowns in engulfing darkness-
Who dare light a candle in failure's labyrinth.
The sky is in shambles; the space is shattered
Millions of falling stars incinerate hopes,
Jupiter with collided moons volcanoes towards dreams.
The sun weeps in fury
The oceans boil with rage
Success is a fiction buried deep in earth molten magma.
Glistening sweats on all shades¹
While trying to weather a storm of mountains
A crack. A crush, dreams keep falling into defeat's gulley.
No one lights a candle in failure's labyrinth While rue rules the rue²
Setbacks wins the day.
1 shades- different skin colours
2 rue- French for street
