In a distant land

Very far from here

They didn't lift a hand

When all that lived was fear.

The grounds were in tatters

The waters emptied out

But none of this matters

For there was no one left to pout.

They fled very fast

Trying to escape their pain

Running from their past

Having nothing left to lose or gain.

Abandoned it now lays

An empty, lonely land

Where nights turn to days

Buried under the sand.
