Unforgiven

Did you give your life for me
And the bad that swells within
Is it human frailty
That which you call “sin”

Or is it something placed there
For achieving future goals
During times of desperation
Saving human lives, not souls

One could not view a rainbow
Against a rainbow sky
Nor does a cobra make a stand
Until it thinks that it may die

And when our cards are lotted
And our numbers are called forth
Then armor shielding hearts and bones
Chills; like a cold wind from the north

When buttons inside walls of steel
Will make doom fall ...
