We are just numbers among other numbers. Numbers, only numbers, but some of them count so much more.
The age – the where and when – does not matter. In a near future, the toughest challenge to face will be overpopulation.
Birth control will be a civic duty but individual will alone won’t be enough…
Aimless wars will become serial entertainment; controlled deaths, a millionaire lottery.
Branded like beasts, drawn like bingo balls for death – a win for your family. All the rotten, the evil, the worst, will be marketed and sponsored as fair, decent and good.
In a near future, society will have different ethics, a different perception of good and evil – of love and hatred.
Only few men will be born with unalterable, natural morals; because nobody will ever change the value of love for somebody who’s truly in love.
In a scenario of absurd tomorrow, a brave soldier, finally back home, will discover the truth about his gone love.
A mute warrior, a vow of silence, a merciless revenge put in meaningless prose.
… Screams of silence
cries of tears
my heart is there
Screams of silence
the voice of torn love
a black heart remains
in the rumble of pain…
