But only another birth"

There once was a boy with black wings.
He dabbled with terrible magic things.

His goal was not to be corrupted,
But his plan was interrupted.

The devil spotted a young one,
Full of knowledge, his work was half done.

He spoke quietly with him,
Filling the boy to the brim.

Now he sings,
Of devilish things,
Cruel and terribly, horribly harsh,
He is behind the demons’ marsh.

Roses may be red, but he’s good as dead,
And violets may be blue, But his heart went askew.

The boy with black wings knows he is wrought,
The devil's soul is what he bought.

To love is to be vulnerable; Triumph is born out of struggle; We notice shadows most when they stand alone in the midst of overwhelming light.
