I Took A Photo With A Dead Body

I took a photo with a dead body

It was stinking. Still

I went ahead and took it

For it was my first kill

Blind Rain

Though I may have not seen it

I’ve felt it with my hands

Held it against my fingers

And let fire make amends

I know they rate it quite highly

Wouldn’t have a word against its grace

Is it any different from my tears

When it trickles down my face?

Drawing Lines

The clouds pour equally on us

The winds blow the same

Who are we, then, to draw lines

And play this wicked game?

A Single Language

Pick a child

Teach him a language

A single language

Start with the As and Bs

Go right till Ys and Zs

Talk to him

Let him return the same language

Day in and day out

Like this is the only language that speaks the truth

Like no other language exists

Let him grow with that language

Give him friends

Give them liberty

But never let them venture too far

For your language alone speaks the truth

And your language alone is divine

And once the child is grown, he’ll raise other kids likewise

And teach them all that he was taught

And gift them all that he was gifted

And make them believe all that he was made to believe

And they shall forever speak a single language

Man Is A Funny Animal

Man is a funny animal

Fights for peace

Dies for love

Abuses the living

Grieves the dead

Indulges in sins

Fears his death

Hear him grumble

Hear him stumble

Man is a funny animal

Let It Rain

Let the fire in my heart rest for a-while now

For I really need to put up a smile now

Let my words and songs be sung now

For I ain’t growing any young now

Let it rain

Let it rain

Let it forever rain

And burn my heart again

Let all the folks seek false cover now

For I cannot start what is over now

Let them hide in their homes now

I’ll face this storm alone now

Let it rain

Let it rain

Let it forever rain

And burn my heart again

Let these drops mean much more to me now

Precious little diamonds for free now

And if they hold no meaning for you now

I’ll just wave goodbye to you now

Let it rain

Let it rain

Let it forever rain

And burn my heart again

Lie Amongst The Wreck – 2

There she stands

Dressed in black

Lie amongst the wreck

For her vengeance

She is back

Lie amongst the wreck


She holds my hand

In the dark of the night

She’s a lie tonight

She laughs and plays

With my plight

She’s a lie tonight

And the truth bows down

To her might

She’s a lie tonight

Down my spine

She sends a fright

She’s a lie tonight

There she stands

Dressed in black

Lie amongst the wreck

For her vengeance

She is back

Lie amongst the wreck
