Being tired of this wicked world is not always because you see yourself lifted into a better place, it is sometimes trying to understand why the innocent are the victims.


Theres a dream deep inside

not one I wish to hide

pure fantasy some would say

but let them have their way,

what I dream is not their concern

though it might be someday

that an end to all the bad and evil things

should happen sooner than the end.

Being mortal has its flaws

you feel the pain

fall victim at this systems claws,

just everything

makes you feel so sad

sometimes it makes me feel so mad.

Try not to blame God

because it goes on

Yes I know its mans doing

but another child has gone.

Try not to sound as if a 'saint'

believe me far removed

from such and with mistakes

that I have made.

So I am guilty that is true

and if it were then the time due,

would I appear

right in Gods eyes

I shake my head

no not with lies.

That is not what I dream

it is that this Earth

from the wicked be redeemed.

that those inocent may have

a better place to live.
