    Revelations
    by Absolut

    As real as the Revelation of Jesus Christ to St. John..
    these chapters reveal the blood spilled off the palm...
    from the Alpha & Omega...
    My first & last which washed away my sins as time passed...
    I begin at this ending..

    This message I’m sending to the 7 temples of my life...
    the lyrical explanation of my mental strife..
    This pain I shall forever wed as my wife..
    as a candle which burns eternally inside me...
    The things which I believe were behind me..
    constantly remind me that..
    I am nothing without the love which emerged from the flame...
    My father who lost his name and his sane playin this game and...
    For years I struggled with refrain to walk in his steps...
    lest he became the first person I reject..

    And for awhile it was just I & my 1st Earth..
    the person who brought my birth became the concrete from which I arose...
    Me who you fed and clothed but love you never told or showed...
    I got used to being alone til you brought my sibling home...

    And I became Able to his Cane...
    We fought every night & day while you were away..
    I never wanted to stay with..
    the foreign abuse of the native..
    this was my homeland he invaded..my security jaded...
    I hated the fact we were related....
    He was a heinous sadist, the shade~est one of Satan's
    and so Shameless..
    My lord told me to have patience..
    I kept waitin’ for a moment when I could escape it...
    My life I could take it...
    I kept debatin’ but lord you know what’s best...
    So I lay awake at rest...
    Holdin’ this pain close to my chest...My pulse..weak...
    feelin’ my vein beat...Fear...I never sleep...
    it’s too deep...and my neck I need to protect it...
    but then came 1986 when the Devil got elected...


    Things went from bad to worse...
    Our war started around March the 1st...
    he gained entrance to our home with a soft approach...
    “He” whose name should not be spoke..
    came under the guise of peace..
    But he indeed inside was the beast..
    Cared he not in the least when he watched you weep...
    I watched him creep and then pretend like everything he did was sweet...
    He was a sinner..a wannabe winner..a cheat..
    A step in the wrong direction and very steep...
    He didn’t work, cook, or upkeep...all he did was eat, sh1t, and sleep...
    Still you kept the home neat..
    worked and carried us all on your two feet..
    Kept your pain discreet but I peeped you cry in church everyweek...Lord..what could we have sowed for this to reap..
    To what do we owe...You put him through school found him a job and what did he show......
    His fists daily blow by blow...

    I’d feel the floor shake and know at 8yrs old I had a 32 yr. old foe...I had to go fight afraid..with all my might..
    and lose every night...told to stay away if I wanted my life..
    I wanted my knife but thought it might be used against us..
    the beatings were relentless..daily and endless..
    The police never helped us...I was locked in the basement the placement made me appreciate the darkness...
    in my own...Sometimes he would rip out the phone...
    Being beat to the bone with hangers..and punched in the dome...only increased my pain threshold...
    from eight to sixteen years old you polluted my soul...
    I was filled with hate..internally my temper was great I wanted to die or just escape...
    never knew love til the conception of my child twisted my fate..

    Still the deception existed within and I made a mistake...
    forsakin’ my 2nd Earth prior to the birth I left her...
    Attempted to fill my center with something that wasn’t right...
    and if you can hear me now I’m sorry but I wasn’t right...
    Clouded with depression and hate in my sight on..
    an unbelieveable height for me to overcome......
    I was tired of life..I wanted to be done..I hated seeing the sun...
    You made me live when I wanted to quit...
    the only thing I had worth sh1t...
    So I’m sorry if I treated you like it...but I always loved you...
    I just didn’t trust you...cause no one’s ever loved me...not even me..

    These things I testify unto you known to be true..
    as bright as the mornin’ star..these revelations are...All I am..
    the beginning and end...so surely will it come quickly...Amen.
