Destined to be a Slave

Updated on May 7, 2011

Failing, falling as I watch dreams crashing

Blinded by faith I’ve been wondering

About the warnings, the signs

Yet, now not blindfolded I sigh

And nothing remains to grasp cherish, to eye

Lost due to the currents of life, beaten and distressed

Life has enjoyed inflicting the pain, it turned

To be a race titled how many times you can get burned

Sorrow and sadness have broken through the solitude

Grasping the peace with a force of enormous magnitude

Yet, even in the solitude the loneliness I can never end the feud

Between the broken soul and the empty life

Though for peace and harmony we all strive


Through the falling rain I have looked and past

The bleak darkness I’ve yearned and ran fast

Yet, the chalice of hope I was unable to grasp

And at the end of the race I always was last

Out of breath, out of life, forced to gasp


Yet every time I took in the air it tasted like acid

And I have walked this life with a face that I despise and hid

Like a pawn discarded after it has turned obsolete

Broken, depleted, struck my time, not on her feet


And fate claimed to toy with my body as I walk through this jungle

And in its eternal scrolls it has written a life of sorrow and struggle

Perhaps, the world is unfair, and fate is a mocking bird

Perhaps, nothing changes and enough words have been said

Again fate is obscure

And the solitude is not a cure

And we are destined to wonder blind like Oedipus the king

The suffering for us is eternal, yet for fate it’s a fling

So why don’t we fade into the solitude of pain

Since it’s useless watching  the chuckling rain

For we are slaves, in shackles born

Destined to endure the pain, yet prone

To the bleakness and madness life claims its own

      What an amazing poem and the Naruto soundtrack really goes so well with it. I am particularly drawn to "For we are slaves, in shackles born Destined to endure the pain"
