A cloud looms

On this earth, is there no reprieve? Each day here defies my sanity, but we still call it reality. Something feels off to me That cloud that looms and never leaves Raining down great hypocrisies Watering down true philosophies Shrouding the sacred mountain, So we never reach the peak. Why does it grow, yet never leave? Spilling it's gale into a well of agony Filling the tainted spring fifty fathoms deep Endlessly refreshing the supply of suffering. Which does not deplete.
