I stalk you all, the rich and the poor,
Through alleyways and penthouse floor.
I shall come for you like a common thief,
To steel your resolve and bask in your grief.
For I, have come to dash your dreams,
Crush all your hopes, and watch you scream.
No counselors talks or chaplains rights,
Will calm my rage or ease your plight.
For I am an evil as old as time,
I am the Bane, of all mankind.
And in your minds I shall make my lair,
I am the Demon,,, they call Despair.
"Despair", By John GoldenWolf
