Land Runs Red

1359222_61561854

The land is green and gold

With many plants untold

Sheep graze on grass

In the safety of the fold

The land has blue

Water to refresh you

Bright colors announce anew

That spring is now due

The land has many creatures

That inhabit it’s features

Most notable are humans – strange creatures

Now hark! the words of a preacher!

The land runs red

Red with blood that’s bled

Blood from the defenceless

That we kill, that lie dead

In white coats in white houses

We kill the future of our culture

And drown in blood

the graves of our fathers

We walk the streets,

We don’t see it

But we walk in blood ankle-deep

And few of us weep

The blood of innocents cry

The cry for vengeance rises high

Few pause to think what happens

When the avenger draws nigh?

The count of the dead

Outnumbers every genocide earth has had.

The land runs red

Red with blood of defenceless dead

According to WHO, every year in the world there are an estimated 40-50 million abortions. This corresponds to approximately 125,000 abortions per day. (reference http://www.worldometers.info/abortions/)

If you do the maths, that means that EVERY second, 1 child is killed. It’s past time to speak up for those who never got a chance.

Abolish Human Abortion.

You’ll Never Forget

1052096_35962411

You never really forget your first sweetheart
And you’ll never get over why it fell apart
Never really understand how you got played
Never stop wishing you could relive those days
The nightmares won’t cease and dreams won’t appease
The emptiness when one takes your heart’s piece
The bleeding never stops – it just goes on and on
Even when your tears dry and your blood is gone.

=

Even once you’ve sworn to yourself that you moved on
You’ll still remember our song
The place we first met and held hands
The sway of the trees above as they clapped again
The innocent gestures that seem so childish now
Those long calls at those absurd late night hours
You’ll still remember those silly arguments
And the slow but serious increments
You’ll never forget when you kissed her forehead
No, you’ll never forget it till the day of your death

=

And by some chance, you might think
That maybe you could try again and change it
Maybe you might dream of actually winning
That she was feeling what you’re feeling
That maybe, if you could hold hands one more time
She would remember and come back and it’d be fine
And there are days, where if you could you would
Show at her front door and give her all you could

=
But those days be many and far between
Swallowed up by uncontainable fears
Drowned beneath mountains of sorrow
Forever running from the pain that follows
Doesn’t matter how far you run, you’ll be found
Those memories got tracking like bloodhounds
Looking for the puzzle’s missing piece
But you know exactly where it is
Maybe there’s another match out there
Maybe there’s another match somewhere
But you will never forget your first love
You’ll never forget the day she walked out

Beyond the Darkness

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Just because I’m in the night
Doesn’t mean I don’t love the light
Just right now, my world is dark
Dark like the blackest night – tis truth stark
When one might as well have no sight
Oppressive and forboding,
Crushing the soul, body, and mind
So thick that you could sink in it and die
Flounder at the bottom in your misery
But I’ve had a vision of a place
Filled with glorious light
So beautiful – full of peace
Everything that we ever seek
Where treasures are hidden
Of which we cannot speak
Marvellous things untold now unfold
Swallowed up in glorious light
I never saw what was inside this place
Just the joy it brought my weary face
And all I know is this place
Is beyond where the darkness abates
Beyond the darkness, beyond the night
Is a place filled with glorious light
Just beyond the hill, where I can’t see
Is the place of light I long to be
Beyond the darkness – beyond the pain, misery, strife
Is a place where there’s love and life
Out of view, just where I can’t see
Somewhere out in front of me
I’ve seen the end in a vision – despite the night
Beyond the darkness is a glorious light

Lay My Weary Head

Monumental stones of marble weigh down on my heart
Tis stones are carvable but they have crushed me apart
Darkness, like before the dawn, steals over my soul
Lost and forlorn – it’s hard to stay alive in the cold
A blazing fire dying out, embers flickering in and out
Ruined redoubts with enemy hordes circling about
I’m so tired of being alone and forever haunted
Just want somewhere called home to lay my weary head

Days of Our Lives

890464_60973647

You were like an angel
I was your dream
Here is your halo
Now come dance with me

They say love is oxygen
Dont get any an’ die
Or better still then
Get too much and go high

We was so high
Heads in the cloud
Dancing in the sky
Never coming down

I still remember your kiss
Walking home alone
But it was bliss
Cause I suddenly felt home

These were days
Days of our lives
Before it all decayed
Into an endless night

Days when we laughed
And we walked the hills
But all that is past
And all that’s left is ill

Those were days
Days of our lives
Before they flew away
Into an endless night
