Forever A Slave – Zararia Yul

Image result for girl bw

Ignorance is bliss, or so they say,
shutting our eyes and going our way,
we don’t want to know
’cause then we must answer,
take responsibility and not blame a master,
yet, when we stay blind and block our ears,
our lives become tormented
with troubles and fears,
sooner or later we ‘re pushed in a corner,
given an ultimatum which will make us a mourner,
no longer in a position to run and hide,
we must make a decision with truth to abide,
fear of exposure now make us a slave,
in the hands of a master that makes a knave,
forever we’re swallowed by the doom of darkness,
stuck in vicious webs of gloom and starkness.
