the owl

all have purpose,

i know mine.

the cyclopic eye slowly surrenders to fatigue,

mine begins to defy weakness.

icarus,why did you want to touch the sky,

perhaps you wanted to unveil it with your own naked eye.

all have veils unveiled in darkness.

i know.

all have purpose,yours was freedom.

innocence,robber and giver of life.

my sight pierce the veil,

yet i dare not to pass judgement.

my sight  see through the tenses of one's flame.

some believe i hoot when the wick nears its end.

icarus, your executer sleeps,

his croonies,

call on me and wondered

if tomorrow ,the monotonous task is  to end.

i foretell,

one succumbs to worries,pale and grey he becomes.

others shun my presence,

distance themselves to my worthy presence.

speck of spots,they are.

icarus,what is to become to tomorrow,

if your slayer knows of his tomorrow,

what is to become of him,

if i hoot his name,

what is to become of him,

if he knows that my sight is clear in darkness.

grey,pale,he will become

shunning my worthy presence.

ending our tomorrow
