Strung out young easily misled,
a directionless soul with hungry passionate eyes,
dwelling where the youth die dead.
Bereft and broken, a defiant valiant chin upraised,
a patient doom awaits a careless innocence.
Scuttling through dark passages boldly brave,
destined to be a criminal slave, young bravado easily caged.
Angry and deceptive shadowy visages assault
and belittle the formulating Spirit,
confused and na´ve decides to consolidate
and be complicit rather than feel alone,
a sort of Stockholm syndrome.
Vain attempts to synthesize and accept a chaos so in depth,
spared madness by the gift of a swift and delicate smile,
a young bridesmaid smote and beguiled,
and inspiring relevance to the motive of perseverance.
Yet, dreams are dashed upon the concrete stone and stair,
hope ensnared like a rabbit in a snare.
Eyes turn cold as bold is rewarded with beaten.
And Young valiance becomes the young cretin,
a much maligned and misunderstood mischievian.
Succumbing to the Nethers, a delinquent emerges,
inhalating the Ethers he surely seals his fate.
