"Of This World" by Eric Wayne Flynn

Updated on December 23, 2014

Of This World

Of this world

A terrible fate

To be

Something

Of this world

Destined for breath

In it

Of this world

In it

Of this self

A prisoner of blood

Ye crimson warrior

Released unto dust

A sad sun sayeth

Goodbye

To thine breed

May sacrifice and suffering be exiled

A foreign land awaiteth

A face

Some thing to salvage

A life

Lost

In it

Of this world
