When I watch you
You seem not to notice me and the rest of your own.
You seem tough and iron fisted, unmovable.
You lead us blindly into the night without even a light of your own
You are not what we need.

Or.

When I watch you.
You blink in surprise at this new face emerging from the crowd.
You stare and then recompose yourself for fear of losing your following.
I see only a man with no ambition anymore.
Only a man, where you see a god.

I say.

”listen my fellow man I am here to reveal the truth to you!”

I tell your subjects what you have hidden from them.

Then I grin at your terrified eyes
As my teeth latch into the hearts of “your” people
I laugh and watch them tear you apart.
I smile knowing my enemy is no more.

I swore to fight you and what you stood for till one of us passed on…and now you’re gone.
Now you’re gone and I will follow suit for the world has no more use for me the destroyer.
I swore to fight you and what you stood for till one of us passed on…and now you’re gone.
