This poem reminded me of people who just speak with the intuition of ridiculing for the sake of hurting. The beginning stanza was a great start. Specially the "lashing tongues," it hits one with a concrete yet abstract image. I also like the use of "Hyenas" good metaphor fitted for the poem. I associate the Hyenas like with bullies.
I think by Eclipsed life.. the way I interpret it is that those lashing tongues can make ones life obscure and pretty much they can mark our life forever.
This poem is sad and it has more depth. What I loved the most what the journey I was taken into with a few words. Specially in this stanza

runs wild to escape
to find freedom
