WHAT DO YOU SEE?!(by: Mayron M. Cordon Arevalo)

Tuesday, August 19 2015

I see the walls falling down
Fire and tests for which we'll be bound
Losing our life over one another
Forgetting that we have a heavenly father

I see my wings being torn apart by my own brothers
I see my head being slice by my own mother
A shadow staring at me with thirst of blood
Showing me things we can not be taught

Fear, depression, lost, emptiness destruction, are the things he embodies
I see his scythe reaping my soul off my body
Nowhere to go, just living in my head
"Follow me and I'll set you free" he said

Lies and more lies, stay away from me
A place filled with death and shadows is the place you will always be
This place you call earth is govern by me
I have taken everything from you, can't you see?

A person who tries and tries but can not do anything, that's how I feel
Like a fish under water that can not breathe through its gill.
It's hard to think, hard to breathe, hard to see
No matter how hard you try, you can not help me

The hole of grief is way too deep
Knowing that your love and friendship I can not keep
The feeling of freezing in my hand as I see my blood drip
A nightmare where I struggle in not losing my grip

What a pathetic human you are!
You think you're safe living under a star?
You absolutely have no idea where you're coming from
He screeches trying to tear apart my ear drum

You are weak!
Not able to think
I'll beat you to your knees
And you will bough before me!
