      I'm normally just a list lurker, but I wrote this and it has some
      existential themes to it so I thought I would post something for a change.

      Reflections of a Soul Lost

      Our hero's heart fast does flee
      Approaching Storm's desirous demise
      From flame twisted barriers of faith
      Not known or sought silently
      Before the pale plagues of mystery
      Creep forth in dark carriages
      Drawn by slumbering, sullen white stallions
      Savagely across desolate deserts
      Of black, guilty soil -
      The wreckage wrought plains of belief
      Beholden to manacled mankind
      Burdened by boundaries of false futures
      Driven forth by unknown evils and
      Fearful light of unbearable consequences
      For actions left laboriously unmentioned
      At life's gaping stone doors
      Locked by the unmerciful key of Death.

      S. W. Sharpe
