No song is worthy in the hearts of men.
For darkness is part of us, but we treasure the light.
Hope is just another word, when you cherish the things dear to you.
No need for confession when everything falls down.
Crimes are committed for the sake of glory.
But I need nothing more than my own hatred.

I pray that one day I will be swept away
By the winds that carry joy, love, and tenderness.
All at once, just like the rain.
Iíve fallen but lifted as I heard your voice.
This madness helps me create my own walls.
Let heavenís Angels curse me as they will.
Because the pain Iíve held is nothing but my own.

Where then, is understanding?
When we are wrapped up in our own image.
We only see what weíve created.
When time is just a bitter vacuum.
Until I am dry, I stay on two feet.
Until I am old, I persevere.
But loneliness seems to consume me.

Thanks for the comment
This was actually sort of a free write. I wrote the whole thing in under 2 minutes. Within those 2 minutes, I felt so many things at once. In a way, I consider it an exercise. Thanks though, I'll take it into consideration.
