Death lay around her

Fire and ruins house the dead

No mercy given

Crying in a corner of rubble

A mother holds her children

The mother already dead

The children weeped

She heard the cries of fear and sorrow

She knew she had caused it

And that she was not done

She approached calmly

The Blade gleems

Lay waste another head

This one another young

She would cause pain

Her sword is more forgiving

A quick death is certain

One more child now

This little girl looks up

Awes to She who stands

Moist eyes glitter green

Another cry and plead

Another body lay waste

No remorse, No thought

The air is thick

Burning blood and bodies

She looks forward

She knows not content

Only life

Only death

She leaves this message

Written in crimson stain

"Death gives Life meaning"
