Just a Soul in The Snow
Writer's Note: this poem is dedicated to Catgypsy and all of my cherished followers who all have touched my life and inspired me to exist even when there was no reason.
Thank you, Kenneth Avery
Born in hot blood, fierce words, hate and war
I took my place. I hated my race. Even loathed even more my face.
Cheap work was pictured blood and fear, nothing but poverty to show
Who's that, the little boy asked. Oh, just another soul in the snow
I lost my name, the booze I tamed, and time to me stood outside
I watched him die, my lady gently cried, and my two friends became darkness
I dug his grave with shovel so true, she wrapped herself in adultery no clue
What's that, she mumbled so low,
Nothing. Just another soul in the snow
Foreign, tasteful and loving misses, nights of nameless passion, I craved
Hunger, plague, and death were sneaking while angels of nowhere always peeking
My feet sank in dew, a bellow so true, my eyes longed for a spell in a grave
Is he your foe? Then He signed, no, just another soul in the snow
Eyes of murder, heart so thin, steps to stop, steps to begin
Babies sang thrice, Redbirds talked twice, and "she" lured with such nice eyes
My Buick! Oh, my Buick! Why did they rob me late at night?
I'm nothing to see, nothing to use, all I am is someone else's muse
What's his name, said Johnson Bedlow, with wages high and low
Sorry, sir, his gopher didn't know. Aww, he's just a soul in the snow
In final hour, I crawled the tower to where He had His Book
My legs were gone, my hands were bone, and my eyes, the colors seen shown
My breath now a number. My life now a slumber. I begged for a place. Just a place
I' m no king. I own no ring. I hunger for peace above and below
You see, all I am is just a soul in the snow
