Dancing with Death

They lived in fear,

They had in the past be a target of their nation

 

Children of their nation,

Killed and tortured,

By those meant to protect them

 

Seeds of their nation,

Called looters and hooligans to justify their killings

 

Those meant to keep them safe,

Kept quiet,

Those who talked,

Denied

 

Those who tried,

Were intimidated

 

Those that fought on,

Were silenced

 

They watched as some of their brothers,

Danced to the rhythm of their death,

Just because they spoke a different tongue

 

Victims,

Wounded forever,

They lost their fathers,

Their friends,

Their siblings,

They even lost their children

 

Their truth was denied,

Only they know what it was like to face death,

Then being blamed for bringing it on themselves through lies and propaganda

 

They were lied to when they were told that they were children of their nation,

They wait for the end of their torment while they live in fear,

They have memories that will always be scars in their hearts,

Yet they fear that this may not be the end,

All they do is pray that there will not be a next time,

All they have to hold on to is their faith

 

 

Darkness

His life was all about chains and darkness,

He walked over a bridge that took him to a forest and burnt it down after he crossed it,

 

He embraced so much negativity,

He made no light shine from within him

 

He ran deeper into his forest,

Every time he believed someone was close to finding him

 

He did not want anyone holding his hands,

He did not want anything that would shine a light,

He believed that he was not worth it

 

He got himself tied with shackles of self hate,

He embraced the darkness until it became his normal

Eyes

Her eyes saw nothing but a failure in the girl

Someone that wasn’t good enough

It was a mistake working with her

A waste of time

With her eyes she looked down upon the girl

But the eyes of the girl have seen more than that who criticizes her

They have seen deep into her soul

They have seen her pain

They have seen her fears

Her eyes have also seen her strength

They have seen her faith and hope deep into her soul

They have seen her get back up and fight

Player

Takes you out,
Gives you the keys,
Gives you the passwords,
Yet you still live in doubt

Flirts all day,
Jobless but always travels,
Never answers your questions,
Tells you you are paranoid

With months,
He’s the person you hate most,
You know he’s lying,
You’ve never seen anything wrong

When the truth comes out,
Remember,
It was never your fault,
He just got better than he deserved,
And he taught you to be stronger
