Evil - Poem by eric leavitt

I thought they cared
I thought they could actually see through the shade
I didn't know that they were truely blinded
Blinded by the cloud of lies that people produce
Blinded by the way they see the world
They are blind mice running through a maze
They try to find what they came to get
And they will do anything to get there
No matter the hearts they take
No matter the souls they shatter
Theres was a time i thought that the mind could force the soul
Nothing could be farther from the truth
In a world where we walk around on zombie auto-pilot
The clouds interfere with our brains
They show us beauty in horrid things
They put an image of glamour and love into an empty box
No matter the cost to you
The others will suceed
And you shall fail
Life is a trap that we can not resist but to walk into
Somethings better left unsaid
They will tell you that when they want to control you
Nothing should be left unsaid
No word unspoken
No thought unprevoked
Dont be alarmed by the speeding train running head on into you
Dont be scared of the things that hurt most
Shall I not show my fear?
Shall I sit on the side my whole life?
A drunken pissant
A man whos opinion matters less than not at all?
I hope you dont feel this to be the case
I will grow to be your sucessor and your ruler
I may not control you
Nor do I strive to
But for the asking you shall recieve your final dues
The only cliche by which i will ever stand
You will get yours in the end
The truth has been told while the people will not listen
I expect nothing more than a glance or a stare
I dont think they will listen to what i will say
But to the end i will say it with pride
And I will say it with a truthful tone
The truth will set no one free
But rather imprison them in their own filth
The truth is what keeps us from being free
If it werent for truth
No one would hold any faith in anything
Truth will do nothing for you
Faith on the other hand may actually get you somewhere
Maybe not faith in a so called god
Maybe not faith in anything of the sort
Faith in a person
Faith in a lover
Faith in love itself
As long as you have faith in something it will set you free
It might not be today
If not today maybe not tomorrow
It may be weeks months and days to come
But it will be there in the end
Something for you to hold onto as you are resigning from this dimension
There might be a next dimension
And there might be nothing at all
But what do you care?
You will have your faith
And hopefully you will have love
Never underestimate the power that lies within you
Your body matters nothing when compared to your passion
If you have an undying passion within you
You have hope in your life
My passion has been drowned by many tears
Watered down by the pain of time
Things i say matter nothing
Things i do are filled with the pain i feel for every passing second
The pain i hold within is beautiful in every single way
I want to set my pain free and be rid of it forever
It clings to me as a mother to child
An everlasting part of me
It crawls through every part of me
My skin
My hair
My blood
And my brain
Every second of my life is full of this pain
It will never let go of me
Maybe i can do some good with my life
If i can save you from this pain
Maybe my life would have been something wonderful rather than something evil
If you heed this advice and listen to me for once
Maybe my pain can be your pleasure
Love your mate with a never perishing spark
May your life be full of the love i lack
May your life be everything mine was not
Maybe if someone lives happily we can start a trend
Many more might catch on
Or they might just ignore
It is their loss
Make my pain your pleasure
And set a dead soul free
