Random Poem:

I Am

I am
The dream that you have
When your falling and calling
For help but there's no one around.
You scream
You try to grab something
There's nothing
So you hit the ground.
I am
The feeling you get
When there's someone behind you
You turn and there's no one around.
I am
The chills up your spine
When you scream
Yet you dont' make a sound.
I am
The shadows and darkness
That swallow you whole
When your soul is nowhere to be found
I am
The demon inside you
And I'll burn all your
Hope to the ground
Hear the voices in your brain
Assuring you that your insane
When the silence seems so loud
Who the fuck's gonna save you now?
I am
Sick of the lies
The deception the hurt
And the pain
Your voice is killing me softly
So fuck it just bring on the rain.
I am
The road that you take
When they say that the going
Is rough
I am
The blood you will shed
When you decide that enough
Is enough.
I am
The final solution
The one thing that
Keeps you alive
I am
The throats you will slit
When its time
To do or die.
:Chorus x 2:
