How long can you be blind in broad daylight
and see nothing when you have seen it all?
How long can you overlook and feign ignorance
to the point of being compassionate, if not more?
How long can you live to die in the end
and still be sane enough to distinguish
right from wrong and lies from the hidden truth?
I have lived long enough to see the day
fading into the darkness of the night,
while to feigned ignorance my sanity succumbed,
slowly until my soul could no longer discern,
and between things, good and bad, all the borders burned.
