Damaged beyond repair


The Moon glistens behind a veil

of dark clouds rolling by

under the star studded sky

The wild winds blow,

leaves tremble and fall to the ground

The earth shakes and the angels frown

from the fear of tomorrow

the joy and the sorrow


The inevitable death

dwells in the depths of your soul

You want to stay alive

but your life's taking its toll

Your insides corrode with lust

as you rust on the outside

You swallow your rage

and hide behind your pride





Strive to strike a balance

drown in serene simplicity

smother the defying role

in this hour of adversity

for your faith has departed

and all the signs you doubted

render you blind and aimless

tonight you rest in the lap of despair

with your conscience damaged beyond repair

Nice subtle ryhme scheme here. Frowning angels -- dig that image. Sort of a lament of despair verbalized here in colorful language.

"for your faith has departed

awesome, reminds me of a quote i live by, "I'd rather believe theres a God to die and find out there isnt one, than to not believe to die and find out there is."

very surreal and descriptive, you also use a lot of alliteration in this one and the slight rhyme, i like it.

thank you for stopping by, i'm glad you liked it. we, with our infinitesimal minds, seek to rationalize the existence of God. I guess that makes us one of the most insolent of God's creations, right next in line with the Satan.

eh i dont rationalize it i just believe, not in the biblical God really(im not big on religion) but my own idea of him. i believed before i heard that quote, but that quote really made sense. it wasnt in those exact words, they probably said it better than me, but you get the gist of it. but yes humans are programmed to sin, and people in general are basically rude and arrogant and condescending and hypocrites, and stupid, but there are a few good ones out there, we all have our moments. as i believe so does God, maybe hes done things he regrets. who knows..

im just saying... no one really knows what God is like, i think he is capable of making mistakes too, even if they are on purpose ;)

God makes no mistakes. thats why He's God. you wanna know what God is like? look at the world around you. God is in the dunes and deserts, in the depths of oceans and the rise and fall of tides, in the star-lit night sky and the morning sun, in the mountains and waterfalls.. is this not perfection to you? who do you think provides sustenance to all the creatures? The world has survived for don't know how many billion years.. is it merely co-incidental? is it logical to think that someone capable of making mistakes could possibly have control over the entire universe? I don't think so.

yes i know all that, but i didnt mean mistakes like that. i meant in people. and you have to admit theres also a lot of bad in this world, and i wasnt being literal, hence why i said even if he makes them on purpose, I believe he is all knowing, and he gave us free will and such knowing that we will sin, and that bad things will happen, but he gives us the choice, and those that choose him get the greater reward. I know he has a reason for everything he does, we may not always agree with the answers he gives us, but he always answers.
