If doubting is thinking and
thinking is being,
those people so self assured
can't possibly be real.
And caged birds
sing just to fill the time.
A trampled rose(a heart,a world)
Lies at your feet.You step over.

If it's a sin to kill
a mockingbird,
why isn't it to
shoot the Messenger?
As shooting stars sing their death
across the sky.
A trampled rose(a heart,a world)
Lies at your feet.You step over.

"Normalcy" is an imaginary concept
concieved at birth.
So normal Human is inconcievable.
Yet, being not higher beings,
we use words to describe experiences,
Though, they themselves are an approximation.
A trampled rose(a heart,a world)
Lies at your feet.You step over.

Perfect murder is that
of perfectionism:
Leaving us paralyzed in our fulfillment,
resisting peacefully against the despots
"We warned you..."
And the reply "We have warned each other."
A trampled rose(a heart,a world)
Lies at your feet.You reach down.

This is my lament of the inconsistencies and outrages of our lives and world.
