Sunrise on a despicable world

An unsolvable dilemma
That no one wants to solve
But everyone sees.

Shut your eyes to the world children.
There are horrors here
That would make your spine run cold.
There are people here who might actually hurt you
And you'll never find a way out of the thorny cage.

Beware of knowledge
For it will cause the death of you.
The final bits of earth will fall on the empty shell of your body
And they will whisper
She knew too much. They had no choice.

Choice is the word that bleeds wars
And leaves some with thorny crowds
And others beneath their feet in the dust.
It propels people to their feet
And knocks them to their knees in terror.

To be or not to be
No longer a question.
Being means dying and if you want to be free
You'll have to hide.
