The Day

April 7, 2008
By Alejandro Frias, Las Vegas, NV

The day I am taken away by the beast.
Today is the day i sleep with them.
The ones who couldn't tame the beast.
The beast that doesn't rest for them or I.
It strikes without a cause.
Only the lucky learn to tame the beast.
For the rest its R.I.P.
Ending up with nothing and no one is how it gets you.
In the darkness it will lure you.
To strike and take you is all it feeds off.
To know you belong to it.
The beast has no rules or heart.
Cold and death is all it carries.
The beast strikes at everyone and anyone.
The beast will tear you from inside out.
The only way to stop this creature is to tame it.
