"In the long run, we shape our lives, and we shape ourselves. The process never ends until we die. And the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility." ~Eleanor Roosevelt


They stand and watch,
As the flames rise above,
As the ashes float down silently,
They stand and watch

Snickering at the horror,
Of the burning house,
Letting the secrets spill out,
Snickering at the horror

Watching the hours tick by,
Slowly and painfully,
A knife digging into my back,
Watching the hours tick by

They stand and watch,
As the flames rise above,
As the ashes float down silently,
They stand and watch


Eating away at the flesh,
Tearing it off your soul,
Screaming out in pain,
Eating away at the flesh

Walking away smiling,
At the sight they left in their path,
At the destruction and pain,
Walking away smiling,

Burned

This is so sad!!  GREAT job with this, though!!!  It takes a lot of skill to be able to make someone feel the way that you can!!!!
