An old man stares at his suit of armour,
With the weight of the world
Upon his shoulders

Armour which at one time
He wore proudly,
Worn down by war and all its horrors

He had made a vow
To only dawn it,
In the darkest of hours

And as his world darkened
He emerged...
Ready to face whatever death conjures

War
What makes you
Want to start a war?
What fact of life
Absolutely shakes you to the core?
Is it maybe
The exploitation of the poor?
Or that you'll never again
Hear extinct beasts roar?


As i go through life
I am left with one question
What will it take
For our cancerous existence to see regression?
Will it be a massive reduction
In our population?
Or a global catastrophe
Causing planetary evacuation?
Maybe its time
For such a situation
A forced act of unity
Being the best choice for such an occasion

But in the end
What is it all for?
Many have died
For what we now consider folklore
Have we really surpassed
Those who came before?
Even though we hate natural plants
Enough to start a war?

The world is truly ******
And there's not much left to do
The only ones who will really suffer
Are those left after me and you
So maybe its time we band together
Make the world look spanking new
Give hope back to the young youth
And to those that already grew

Every night many kneel down to pray
Praying that they wake up the next day
Some just go out and have fun
Taking the opposite choice of a nun
Either way their day is done
Internet lovers still surfing
Night time turns into morning

Daylight comes for all
In some places with a rooster call
Days are for all the busy bodies
Nights for all those with hobbies
Though both are great for tv binges

Killing time playing on pc
Internet surfing to watch a movie
Linking memes to friends
Laughing together till the day ends

Having fun
In an attempt to pass time
Making money
Sometimes by committing crime
Everyone is different
Live you own life
Free from fake commitment

Inhale...
Accept life as it is
It will all get better than this

Exhale...
Just remember it gets better
And biting your lip
Will only make your eyes wetter

Inhale...
No shame in shedding a tear
Sometimes life's a burden
And gets too hard to bear

Exhale...
Relax and calm down
Think happy thoughts
And do away with the frown

Just keep breathing
And the fire will burn brighter
Keep on going
You know you're a fighter
As long as you fight
You'll get stronger
And the weight on your shoulders
Will get lighter

Oh man what a day
Why'd life have to be so grey?
As i lay defeated in bed
All i think of is being dead...
I go to sleep,
And i see some water
I take a leap
Into the endless river


Am I floating up?
Or is the sky falling?
I can't tell but the dead
And the living are calling
On one side is my father
Arms open and rejoicing
On the other is my mother
Heartbroken and mourning


I am torn and my heart breaks
I begin to fall as everything shakes
As I fall fast
My bed approaches
Filled with comfort
As darkness encroaches

Finally home
My little safe space
The only place in the world
I can show my true face

Not the happy face
Smiling at a bright tomorrow
But a zombie like expression
That shows nothing but sorrow

So this is me
In all my "glory"
Just a "happy guy"
With a truly sad story

I am lost, but I thought  
I was heading in the right direction
Though each turn I make
Takes me further from my destination
Like each step I take
On the stairway to heaven
Just takes me one step closer.
...To my eternal damnation
