Where will we go now

Where will we go now that the world has fled,
And darkness reaps the sorrows we have sown.
We have nothing left, everything has flown,
Fumbling in the memories of our dead.
Despair and loathing; greyness is our fear,
We are helpless in what we should have known.
Only vanity and these things alone,
Deprive us of our laughter and our tears.
Let us walk now along that barren road,
Where wise and unwise men, grey and old
Find solace from their labours and their load.
Freedom from all of life, love, lust and cold,
Fleeing to that hollow place bent and bowed,
Returns our sad minds, that the earth enfolds.
