Lost in a world

So wicked and cruel

Pure hearts in this world

Are too little too few

Cold hearts rein

Like a tyrant of a king

These hearts crush

The pure hearts that sing

So the purest hearts must hide

Behind walls of cement

Trapped in a corner

These hearts feel most content

This is why I am here

I set those hearts free

From this world

My own heart cannot flee

Broken and shattered

Torn and dismantled

This world was a bit too much

For my heart to handle

I shall build it back up

Not from the original pieces and parts

But from the pieces of the walls that were once around it

A cemented heart

One that cannot be broken

Or torn like light does in darkness

Out of everyone I’ve seen fall

I believe I’ve fallen the farthest

I’ve fallen past betrayal

And lies spoken from the lips of a friend

Even losing the comfort

Of love without end

I’ve fallen past heartache

And sorrow from loss

Also past hatred of me

Without a cause

With the heavy heart

Each of these has caused

Gives one-hundredth to the heart

That is now being constructed out of cemented walls

It is not yet complete

And is already coming undone

The only choice I have

Is now to run

But if I am to run

I would not get very far

I can not go far enough

With any modern train or car

This is a world

Of heartaches and devastation

And not to mention the end

Of a pure heart’s determination

People say they want truth

Love and praise

But once they find these treasures

They choose to betray

My heart is guarded

But still falling as well

But unfortunately my story

Is too long of a tale

Until next time, my viewers

You shall see

All the demons that live in me.
