Flashback Friday Poetry: Escape to Reality

welcome people to my dream
perhaps now all of you will see
all the craziness inside of me
is caused by my own deformity
and i can’t escape the reverie
Damned in this Hell i might just be
i’m asking someone to set me free
freedom from my own insanity
’cause i am my own worst enemy
and i won’t live through this travesty
if my mind just keeps on pushing
this goddamned soul with the false belief
that he might actually be something
if he tries hard enough to make the scene
he’s lost all will unfortunately
so he’ll rot in Hell for eternity
but i don’t believe that’s my destiny
so i will make the stand if you please
my life won’t go to the pits of Hades
i’ll go and conquer the seven seas
so if you’ll excuse me i must leave
it’s time to live the reality

Flashback Friday Poetry: To Lose the Path

the shady, pale eyes of Death are upon you
it is too late there is nothing you can do
the prickly feeling on the back of your neck
He comes for you first then goes after the rest
no one will ever escape His icy hand
after you are taken, your life will be judged
if you’re in good graces you’ll move up above
but for most of you it’s the Pit you shall go
the Seven Deadly Sins you’ve all committed
your death only means over-time for Hades
Gluttony, Pride, Envy, Rage, Sloth, Greed, and Lust
these are all the things you base your life off of
