Okami Kamikaze

(1991 / Oklahoma)

Darkness of Our Race


Darkness wraps around me
Binding my very soul
Yet I still remember innocence
That I shall never again know

Illusions now replace
My fondest memories
People think I'm insane
But I do prefer crazy

I now see the world
Through open unclouded eyes
And I also see the darkness
This species can never hide

    Wow, this really captured my imagination. These two lines made my heart ache:
    'Yet I still remember innocence
    That I shall never again know'
    There's so much talent in here; how the words can create the same mood in the reader. (Report) Reply

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
