Ambushed by StormSage

As I watch all I have known
crumble at my weary feet;
I can only describe my existence, this moment,
as being bitter sweet.

I do not want to realize
my own pain; held deep within.
Yet I find the suffering of others, harder to endure;
contorted faces - despairing.

Fate can not be right this time,
a mistake has been made, somewhere.
And if this is not the case, I believe
'God' to be cruel and equally unfair.

Ambushed with nowhere to run,
our hands are forcefully tied;
living on but hope alone,
all prayers so far denied.
