These Eyes Look Upon The World
These eyes look upon the world;
this heart is greatly troubled through what they see.
Everywhere I walk, I see nothing but hopelessness;
a world that cracks and breaks under its wickedness.
A broken heart it gives me, yet it has shattered
more than it can bear.
The women are pleased by their lewdness for they
possess no modesty; display of their bodies they
so willfully practice, excited by their beauty.
The men hunger for physical enjoyment for they
do not see women as equals;
tools as a means to an end do they make of females.
Death and suffering abound to no end as human
slaughters human; compassion and kinship with their
fellow man is emptied from their hearts.
Deceitfulness reigns within every life as falsehood is
brought before every person.
Innocent are children born as, but a tragedy that they
are corrupted by the evil of others.
A pointless existence do I seem to live; what purpose is
there in my birth?
Curse the day I was born! That I entered a cruel world
such as this!
Little did I know as a child and a greater understanding
I have as a man.
Curse this understanding! That I should know what evil
is! Greater curse is it that it resides within me!
Let my tongue halt and my hand cease as this wave
of sorrow overwhelms me.
