Life Ward

Within these walls
A world cut off from the rest
Restrained by time
Humanity forced to take the test

Behind the curtains
Fates are so routinely filled
Amid the life
Hopes and dreams are often killed

Inside the mind
One objective: complete the task
So many gods
Behind the human and the mask

But amid the default color
The soothing blends of blue and green
So often it is spoiled
Left crumpled, dirty, and unclean
