***I want to take this week I was so graciously given to share my older stuff. My aim is to give you all a better all around glimpse of this poet you all are so graciously honoring. This particular poem is a recital poem. Written in '98 Hope you enjoy! Restrained by mental prisons And superficial shells Unapologetic as we descend To a neverending Hell Unfeeling grins hide the terror of an unknown fate Morality loses its value When love is challenged by hate Degenerate mind reach up for ground and be devoured by the abyss Of self destruction and over indulgence and your personal god who is amiss Live vicariously through broken dreamers become one with their broken dreams Sing along to the Devil's song for nothing's as bad as it seems Hear the truth, believe the lies train your ears to receive the error Ignore righteous men's persuasion and behold the Lord's terror We're in the Revelation of Genesis and in the Genesis of Revelation The era of prophetic utterances the end of hedonistic civilization! Lost souls roam and restless hearts probe infinity is a sigh of relief(depending on which road you chose) And the definition of Heaven is the end of chaos and strife And no man tastes it without dying So life is death and death is life!
