A Long Walk From Nowhere. - Poem by Lance Carthen

Emerging from the eternal blackness
Scarred and bleeding ash's
Compulsive and hate addicted
Relentless, his souls afflicted
Towards revenge and the pain inflicted
From the days of his past life
Of being viciousely tormented

Fists clenched and hard felt steps
He was once again earthbound
This time there would be no regret
He could never forget
Seething laughter and wicked intent
Anger...They never, ever repent

Lost moments only avenged by justice
Sinister power speeding through his veins
Teeth grinding, readying to inflict pain
On the one's who blashphimied his name
Scarring his chest and running from blame
His heart was now a long, sharp malice

In the distance came a laughter
Sounds of joy and happiness
Only deepening his anger
Following the voices to their source
Two kings and several people dropped their jaws in fear
Their eyes fixed in terror of the being that stood before them

Your time has come, he said
In just a moments time, you will all be dead
Pain and suffering your gift
For feeding the innocent live's of torment
A grave for you all is justified
For each time you made the children cry

He raised his hands towards the sky
Drawing the power of some unseen god
Blood boiled at his sharp finger tips
I am the one who will make them repent
With a violent flash, they all lay dead
The kings mutilated faces dripping
Now their own medicine they've been fed

The being walked away
Sensing justification along the way
He thought he was free
Of the demons that haunted him full of deceit
Awakening to a shudder..its so real it seemed
Jesus looked around and thought...Damn..its only a dream
