Scorched lands

Updated on January 18, 2011

Scorched lands

Scorched lands

We walk alone the path of righteousness

Through swamps and mud of misery divine

Dodging our flesh from swarming dead past

To seek a branch of hope, to reach our soul

A Quest of life worth fighting for.

Sore dreams reaping the vast abyss

Creating rifts of blinding torments

We follow gently looking back,

The vacuum hunts our daily lives

Shifting the gears of destiny to us.

The screams of shadows echoing the present

Standing alone against the dark,

Clueless of time bearing the pain,

Lost without balance in but still out

Crumbling earth eating our minds.

Flows of molting crust bursts from the ground

Relieving pressure matching his hate,

The stars themselves are leaving our side,

Corrupted landscapes our eyes take heart,

Sheltering no more, our brutal way of life.

We cry, we knell, and pray to God

No answer now, we had our chance,

Brave humans, lift up your heads and take a bow

The flesh might die, but something will endure

Our souls will forever search the skies.

      Beautiful words, from the dark misery to our souls searching light! My hope is that every soul eventually finds itself as I search for my own as well! You have to be very still and let it happen!
