By
strike a match
ignite your anger
your lust to burn
incarcerate yourself
everyone is ash
this is the leper’s trend
you can fuel your fire with hate
for the greener grass on the
other side of your walls
you can abhor your god for
coloring you in so black
abandoned in your own
ebony delight
but don’t worry, my dear,
your black wool will fade
to mediocre grey and
bleach to standard white
it’s inevitable so act on your
dreams now
while you still have time to
smolder your fears in flames.
