The Darker Side Of Life

Updated on June 12, 2013

Let"s Move The Lever Of My Fate

In the uncertainty of our times

Where death and dying seem almost common place

Let the scars dig deep into our flesh

We try to hide behind the pock marks of years passed

Only if we knew then how our life would of been

Ruined by the upsurdities of all mankind

To see the wild dog

An angry mangie mutt

Viscious and foaming at the mouth

It gives me comfort and joy

When animals and people have become one

To welcome fear as my brother

So evil and twisted as my sister

Each more dominating and decieving

Persecurited for crimes I loved to commit

I see the empty halls

It's a crying shame

That use to house the king of all EVIL

and the most insane

Walking down death row with a smile

I knew it could never last

I leave pain my tormented friend alone once again

      Life is marvelous, isn't it? And it is true that going the wrong path can lead to an expectation of awful things.

      shanmarie To release the craziness of the world in writing.Letting words describe the most horrible place.Sometimes we don't feel the best and we overexaggerate and think our life is the worst.Until we come to our senses and understand our life is marvelous and it is only if you take the wrong path you can keep expecting aweful things.Thanx for reading something offbeat and a little off the wall..

      Good morning dream-on.

      Sensible . Dark side of life. Partially . Real life for real people : all are subjected to " cloudy days, " having in mind the sunshine is above the clouds,- knowing " though I walk through deep sunless walley of the shadow of death, I will fear or dred no evil; for You are with me..." (23:4). This is what works for me: looking straight into eyes of " evil " outloud pronouncing ' I've made decision to be happy , anyway ...'

      Useful, interesting .
