The Wave Of Death

Into the valley of death shall one warrior rise
With the power and strength to slay all suffering cries
The warrior stands at the top of the hill
Only to weep at the sight of those he needs to kill
To end their suffering once and for all
He draws his sword at their beckoning call
With tears of pain flowing down his cheeks
He comes to realize the stench of his doing reaks
A contradiction pops into his head
That once and for all his pain is lead
Sticking in his gut like a metal ball
He cries in pain and begins to fall
The almighty warrior is slain to the ground
Only to rise and kill once more
The reaper shall once more have the floor
Only to feel the pain of those lives he has ended for good.
