    Here on in is a hero with(in)
    free from the stench of corruption and sin
    a hero is one with a heart of pure love
    that strengthens not withers as he grows above
    a hero is one who shows others the way
    back to the land of the living they say
    our hero is missing your hero is gone
    who now has the courage to carry us on
    there are no more hero's
    there are only men
    learning the lessons
    again, and again…

    Cut deeper than most but see the angles were precise so I'll put on a hat to hide my horns in attempts to convince myself I'm just an angel in disguise.

    As corporations kill each other
    trying to succeed
    in the name of profit wealth and greed
    is reasons why
    your minds eye will bleed
    peace on Earth
    when will we see
    when this ends
    humanities free
    so i write,
    life is what you make it
    so read between the lines
    as the government prints more money
    takes over the corrupted minds
    slave to the dollar bill
    no wonder why we rob and kill
    are the children happy learning still?
    lets go to war
    and the poor get kicked out the door
    as the politicians laugh into the night

    I am not your paradise.
    I only hope you never notice me.
    I've bled strong on each page of this poetry,
    clutching at hopes held deep inside of a rosary.
    Trying to bury my self deeper than those who stand close to me.

    Never under estimate the power of the mind
    for its thy eyes that deceive
    and lead you to believe
    that certain levels cannot be achieved
    for this is artificiality,
    a conscious illusion with subliminal ties
    and the fact is
    reality doesn't lie
    brought to you by the universe

    When is the time we'll finally see
    the cost of peace on Earth is free
    when love consumes
    all life will bloom
    no more hate
    it is our fate
    i love you
    do you love me?
    no matter who you are
    or where she'll be
    your my friend
    beautiful and free
    and we shall dance
    in our cosmic dream

    a haiku for you:

    This thread's off topic
    I don't mean to be an ass
    but I'm moving it

    I wish i was a tree
    for the spring would bring me all new leaves
    every year growing up so differently
    my friends the only ones you need
    are the birds who fly and sing to me
    i could be their home for when they go
    only being heard when the wind blows
    saying things only animals know
    can live in peace for all to see
    and grow up tall for all to be
    oh how i wish i was a tree

    For just once in my life give me this…
    the ability of being allowed to see
    the answers i need unfold in front of me
    i wish for peace and i wish for love
    i wish for the sky and the moon above
    like a flower that grows
    even it knows to let its true colours show
    in time we'll see
    in time we'll be
    better

    Wrote this one a few months ago, let me know what you think...

    This for our brothers, fallen in blood
    And the shadows (=enemies) slain, in their way so
    We can see the light of day, this shadow (=enemy) now
    Lurks in our way; clouds our day (tries to defeat us)
    Though this pain (pain of losing our loved ones) is, burning (makes us regret martyrs leaving us), all of it away

    This for our fathers, laid to rest
    To those who passed, this eternal test (were good people)
    Memories, be embraced (held dear)
    A trail of blood (history), left to contest (be against those who deny); to be blessed (make martyrs divine)
    Though these tears are washing, all of it, the best (grief makes us forget why they died)

    We; stood right here
    Had no fear; when they (=enemy) came
    We were near
    Rise; from the ashes
    To the skies, to reprise

    This for our children, taken by force
    We hunt, the enemy, down to its source (=leader)
    Redemption, lies right here
    Though our end is, drawing near (we're not coming back)
    We'll disappear (=die)
    For our blood (=memories), will remain, through, all of these years

    We; are the fallen
    Our lives stolen, how we fought
    Lesson taught (learn courage from us)
    Passion (staying calm in war); clarity (seeing the enemy closing in)
    Wings of; Insanity

    This for our soldiers, who died in war
    For a greed taken, so far (=very), too far
    They died so, we could live
    Is it too much for us, to believe? (believe in their cause)
    And they can never leave (they're always alive in our memories)
    For our hearts will keep the damned (hate for enemies), and the deceived (love for martyrs)

    What I think is everything inside the (brackets) should be spoken and everything outside of them should be sung. This naturally is a song or at least it's trying to be. I will be the psychedelic magician on keyboard banging out some trip funk while you sing, deal?

    Actually, I write song lyrics and this is one my lyrics (not a poem technically) but I figured I'd post here anyway. Stuff inside brackets are just explanation that I added while typing, they're not part of the song.
