Rise from the depths of the graves hidden way back by a thick fog of hate
Surrender themselves to the red moon turned crimson by the blood stolen from their hearts
Tainted Scarlett by the filthy hands that cut their bodies like the cactus begging for moisture
Let out deep sad moans that make no words... moans that are harmonized by betrayal and pain
Moans who's' symphony cuts their ears like razor sharp insults...
Wonder in this circumference filled deep with cold dark debris... blinding them from hopes of ever seeing the morning glow....
Weep thick murky sewage flushed from others insecurities and selfishness
It runs down their eyes and bodies burning every hope of purity they tried to hold on too
Turn their bodies on all humanity as backstabbers throw rusted daggers into their backs
Laughing with disgust as they hope this will be the one way to take their freedom..
Fight to stand tall and peel off that layer on their bodies created by molested mouths breathing fiery words meant to burn their souls but fails as it disfigures their rotten tongues instead
Kneel as they become one with their bodies once again... their heart beat finds a familiar rhythm breathing life into them...
Their blinded eyes widen as their path becomes clear..
Their flesh heals from all the wounds...
Their lips move to the motion of sweet sounds manifesting from their hearts....
Their words shout out in song and praise to themselves... the waves destroying the weapons being cast at them...
Are are free... never to be held captive by chains inflicting sharp pain into their every being
Can now be FREE... free to see the morning glow
I AM NOW FREE.....
