The incoherent voices that cloud my mind

Are singing a tune cast from before mankind

*

A bitter and twisted chord that does not rhyme

Written and told since the dawn of know time

*

A palpable coldness that taunts ones own ears

Played upon bleeding heartstrings to enhance fears

*

The decaying words trail off like died up tears

As will my body wither away with untold years

*

The lies and corruption thick like vitreous tar

Mar my thoughts of a time and place from afar

*

They hold me here in a diabolical wordless cage

Where I am not free to talk or otherwise engage

*

I must listen to the babble of childish taunts

Deep from within my own mind that it haunts

*

The insidious way in which it claws my skin

Is only equalled by the way it seeps deep within

*

The cold, dark, lifeless maleficent shadow of man

The only physical item left, to define me as human

*

As the purification of a life lost from stagnant pyre

Drains out of gods’ holy womb, as a world ending fire.

*

Take a good look around at what we have all become

A society of prayers who are willing to succumb

*

So take control of your destiny before the sands run dry

And make something of yourself before you die
