The Powers Beyond Me
Author: Lynn


what have i been blessed with,
how did i gain this awful right
what was attached to my soul,
who charmed me with this might

in my instant of this world,
this nothing is now a thing
opening up my eyes,
true sorrow i am to bring

these powers are beyond me,
changing my state of mind
turning me into death's puppet,
an enemy of all man-kind

senseless deaths are to come,
and the slate will be wiped clean
somebody please wake me,
for all this has to be a dream

my body has been shredded,
a monstrosity i have become
glowing eyes that pierce the shadow,
now i smell with a forked tongue

i have to end this nightmare,
put an end to my suffering and guilt
kill these powers within me,
until my side the odds start to tilt

these powers won't reject,
the rage inside me grows
i am losing my humanity,
now i'm my only foe
