Redeeming Pandora

redeeming Pandora will prove too much for us,
inspiration to the naive that crushes the mature
these soldiers are tired and they sleep in shifts
waiting for word of their imminent demise

tonight, they will continue to wait in vain
wishing for one moment of sunshine in this long night
for past mistakes to be met with forgiveness and grace
but the heavens are silent and void of love

all they cling to now is their hope
yet what good is hope when the gods want it back?
we will fail, as we were always meant to.
Pandora’s legacy will live on in the hearts of children of war-

-and be forgotten in time, as we all are…
