I am the broken clouds that rain misery
Upon the fragile world
I am the one that hold the sadness of the sinister winds
And the lone flower that blooms in the depths of winter
A storm keeper of dismay
I fold and bow
But this is not with humbleness
More so of an endless sea of cowardliness that floods from my soul
Manifesting itself as my tears
Why am I so weak?
Why can I not stand up to the demons that inhabits the storm within me?
My essence screams for revolution
Although all I am is a lost self entitled salve
That lies quiet, waiting to be devoured
Who am I to call myself a man?
For all I am is prey for the wolfs that incircle me
As well as an open target for karma’s unfortunate fate
Pity me not, because i know the winter does not last forever
And there is a land of peace in the middle of this chaos
So, let me die as I am now
And may I be reborn as guardian of hope
That lives in the darkest valleys
And in the grips of any starless nights
