    Prophesies spoken
    Mad man or cursed prophet?
    Will they ever hear?
    I lament daily,
    Able to prophesy
    but no one believes
    foolish, foolish mortals!
    When will they ever learn.




    **These ideas are take from the greek mythological story of Cassandra, a Princess of Troy who was blessed with the gift of Prophesy and of seeing the past, present, and future. However this gift was laced with a curse; when she spurned the advances of apollo, he cursed her with being able to speak forth prophesies but not one individual would ever believe her. Interesting huhn?

    Rock and a hard place
    Just caught betwixt and between
    A prophet's hands, tied

    Am I truly mad?
    Or is it something else?
    My hands are really tied tight.
    I stand with a heavy heart.
    Release must come soon.

    Living with the curse
    Much wisdom given in vain
    Evolved spirit screams

    Evolved screams fly around
    Wisdom has no use,
    I am accursed and abused
    The cursed prophet today
    Not one heeds the words
    Lonely in the rain.

    Can one so cursed live?
    Summon a higher power
    The answer lies there

    I reach for that high
    Floating on cloud ninety-nine
    My feet still on ground
    Haven't moved a bit
    So what can I truly do?
    My words still fall on deaf ears.
    Heartache of the year.
