Stained Face

Stained Face

Tears you cannot see,

It’s a me that I hide

No one sees inside covered up and bound up

I am not truly free

Everyone thought I was happy

The only things they ever seen

The joy on the outside not the real me

He came and took it away the unseen strife and pain

Now a true joy begins to stream down my tear stained face.

I Knew

I Knew
When I first met you 

I knew things wouldn’t be the same.

I knew you would be the one I would spend the rest of my days. 

That I would cherish you an you me.

Until the end of time we would always be.

Destroying Nature

It’s a shame that he world has to die like a growing flower in orbit.

The delicate petals like fingers of children that will be no more.

It’s a shame that the fallen skies will surround the rivers with dust and covers the seas like

A woolen blanket which has been torn in the middle like the heart of a lost soul.

The paper is blotted, crystal glass is shattered;

The eye of a lion gauged in a gruesome war.

Doves become black as ashes;

The purity of this earth disappeared as a crow in the dead of night.

People create the world’s nature,

Now people are destroying the nature that creatures created.
