Tamashii (soul)-eater

In a world that creates bodies that are hollow

Souls that are cast into a life of disdain and sorrow

The tamashii burns out like candles breathing for the last time

As the sorrow eats up the soul up to its rotten core

And the body with no tamashii is destined to sore

In a world that is forged out from brutality

A soulless body that knows no humanity

Becomes the battlefield of raging desires

And the soul is eaten up massacred by the raging fires

Tamashii- soul eater~~

People would rather eat your flesh in life and in death

And their poisonous tongues would nibble on your soul even in stealth

And the soul weakens by the desires and the temptations of the universe

And the remains of a soul break into the universe and disperse

Burning, the disdain eats up the soul

And drives through the center of your balance a hole

Through your skin and into your soulless body

Yet by then it would be too late to call for somebody

To heal that empty body of yours

For you simply lost your way in this course

Soulless ~tamashii-less~~

In this world we have been eaten up by greed

And on other’s existence we have learned to feed

Regardless to the consequences we have roamed the earth

Spreading the message of hatred darkness and despair

Until the world we have come to know smells nothing but death

And we have created a world similar to a lion’s lair

Where we fight with our claws and fangs to exist

An eye for an eye, flesh for flesh, a fist for a fist

Empty, we have been born into a world that knows no mercy

And for the blood of others we have grown wanting and thirsty

Questions in life~~

Watch them, your own flesh, gathering yet burning, alas

Unchangeable, through this life they pass

Like monochromatic light through a glass

What can I say to make you awaken the good within you?

What do I have to do to make you see the light, the hue?

What do I have to do to make you feel?

That to this body there is more than what you can peel

And it is this kind of beauty that flatters

Appearances are deceiving yet it is your heart that matters

What do we have to say to awaken your conscience within you?

What do I have to say to end things before the world is due?

How do you expect to fix it all before time is up?

Yet the question is how will you put this useless quest to a stop?

 what remains Past the Tamashii~~

So past the burning soulless body, the tamashii what does remain?

Nothing but an empty vessel sinking into the world’s disdain

And after the darkness settles, and the heart quivers what do we say

[We are nothing but empty jars created by heat that molds clay]

And as the sign we look for dies on the floor

Who will comfort you as you soar?

When will you understand the significance of a tamashii, a soul?

And a body untrained is simply unbalanced, empty and un-whole?

so very true, and what are we without our souls? but ugly, vile, careless beings, without a consience, to only do wrong, and not know right. a soul should never be bargained or given away in vain.

I am not an empty vessel! And never will be, until death is come and take me away.

Hard to not admiring you more. As young as you can be, your brain seem had been created from 1000 years ago. As old as I can be, plain and simple will make me never able to climb to the ladder of life, unless until the world change and love in the air everywhere.

How many episodes it is so far? 2 years (imagined that)I never watched any. I must be missing too much, didn't I?

Freya sorry for being late in reading your comment :D Indeed we all desire to feel filled and not empty and i believe that our salvation is within our souls. We have to touch that untampered power, learn how to use it to our benefit, and attain balance.

Freya sometimes i feel like i am a thousand years old, and my brain at some point would just fail me, but until then, all i have to do is write it all on paper :D:D

@Spirit whisperer, thank you for your comment and stopping by :D
