"Hamlet: Oh God, I could be bounded in a nutshell and count myself a king of infinite space, were it not that I have bad dreams." -William Shakespeare


They tied me to the pyre
In my white dress
The yellow rose crown
Upon my silken tresses
He called out my name
and my crimes
None of which were true
And the blue eyed demon
Standing with his judgment scroll
Pulled forth the wailing babe
And held her up
As the executioner
Cut my heart from my chest
And the demon christened her
In mine own blood
And gave her mine own name
And called me saint


The author's comments:
This piece has a lot of symbolism. The girl whose point of view this is from is our generation. The "blue eyed demon" is generation before us (mainly the ones in charge who aren't doing anything). The baby is our unborn children. Take from it what you will.
