Okami Kamikaze

Rookie (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
