My Wall - Poem by Ace Of Black Hearts

I'm running
Like a coward
Whose going to be devoured by the serpent
Please take a bite of that forbidden apple
Open your eyes and see
The devil is inside you and me
Corruption of the innocence in the lack of forgiveness
Dirty deeds bleed from all of humanity
Sins of a forgotten society
So long ago
Who would have known
This was how it was going to be
If we did
We have done things very differently as kids
Made the most of the important years
A turn around
Is what you would have found
More hero's
And very little zero's
Less suicides
Less broken marriages
Less drunks livers failing
Less obesity
Less of everything you and me see
It's not destiny
It's not fate
It's how we relate to the choices that will be made
A convenience that deceives us
Tell us how to live
And what must give
It's just a dribble on this paper
It's how it ends with her
Like all those that came before
Its not a war
It can't be won strategy
Or a analogy
Instead it best left alone
Another Wall
Shield me in such dire times
Please never make me rewind
