I know what it feels like to bleed,

I know what it’s like to feel pain,

the pain of the physical and pain that reigns,

shaking my bones and pounding my veins.

the pain that is faced when the love of your life,

is taken by selfishness, greed and spite.

let them live with the curse, the strongest will win,

allowing the people who feel little to triumph again!

the cruelty that abstains from giving,

wanton ignorance is never forgiving.

from the heart people start to help,

but soon distraction ignores the yelp,

of the dying old man, love ripped from his hands,

he nightmares when only awake.

to sleep he travels to the distant lake,

in search of a memory to retake,

in a country that shined with the wished,

for the happiness where peace lives.
