They were just two nights
When the sun vanished in the sky
And no more warmth is in sight
Just the fading prophecy between her eyes
Shinning like a never ending star
Praying to the immortal oh he that never die
To guide her spirit through this sky
To lead her to the morningstar
For she has given him life
And without her no he cant fly up skies
A falling , lifeless and flaming star was my fate
But the prophecy revealed her to me
A beauty like no mortal have ever seen
Eyes filled with gold and her skin with hareer
Her tears giving life to the unholy screams
Releasing the captured souls of those who wept in fear
Eyesless cant even make the tear
But as rain fell , their eyes started to appear
Revealing more and more of that true prophecy
That made me fall back in fear
For I have sinned and no blessings can I see
A fool who thought he can betray death
And fly to where the angels weep
But as a prayer I can only speak
Hoping for mercy from the tree that tasted my steel .

My Eyes Have Been Soiled
My Cheeks Are Tarnished
Most Foul Face Known
Have Streamed Their Way
Newly Soiled Eyes
They've Tarnished My Cheeks
Made My Face Hideous
They Flow Throughout My Body
The Same Way My Cold Blood
Flows As Well
Through My Heart
Through My Soul
I've Been Told
We All Have Flower Hearts
We've Been Born With Small Seeds
They're Inside Us All
The Only Way For Them To Grow
Is To Make Tears For Them
The More Tears We Make
The More Powerful
Our Flower Hearts Become
My Flower Heart
Will Become Stronger Too
And All These Tears I've Cried
Will Make Me Beautiful

That stone hard look
Shows how much of a monster you are
You don't care what losses you bring to these people
You took away their happiness
Their hearts once were filled with love
Now they are empty
The childhood you took away from these kids
Their happiness, their joy, their trust
They're so young but faced more than any person has faced in this world
You destroyed their homes, their lives
You killed their families
But you don't care
They will never be the same
Living a life in fear
You don't hear their cries
You just left them starve to death while you destroyed their homes and made yours

"Arghh, what horrible day," groaned Fionna. She trudged along the path to her tree house. The sky was dark, the sun was setting really quickly. On her back she carried some books in her pack Cake had requested she find. She had spent all day trying to find them, searching about every library in the land of Ooo.
She kicked at little pebbles as she walked. Some squirrels were chittering in the trees, but Fionna secretly wished they would shut up, for she was beginning to have a head ache. She stopped at a tree stump on the side of the path and sat down, rubbing her temples. She tried to meditate. Her mind began to clear, and the pain in her head began to dull. She got up again and was about to continue when she noticed something.
Everything was dead silent.
She felt a chill go down her spine, a she sensed she wasn't alone. Something was behind her. She gulped and pulled out her sword, and slowly turned around.

Jeremiah 1-17/19 Get yourself Ready!!! Stand up and say to them whatever I command you. Do not be terrified by them, or I will terrify you before them. Today I have made you a fortified city, an iron pillar and a bronze wall to stand against the whole land-against the kings of Judah, its officials, its priests and the people of the land. They, will fight against you but will never overcome you, for I am with you and will rescue you, declares the LORD. What this means is the believer's need to listen to CHRIST. He will prepare you to go out and do what he say's. Whatever the circumstance may be. Do not care what others might say or do to you listen to GOD!!!!! wholly surrendering to God is totally going out of our ways even if it hurts even if something bad might happen we cannot be afraid.

Like I used to kiss your cheek
Then I'll stand and walk away;
These feelings I no longer hide.

Lost in a bleak infinity
Trapped in this primordial chaos
Among tarred, grotesque monuments
As deep slumber engulfs me
Feeling so lost in this void
Where I feel just too much
Vacant monuments of ancient times
Now they are all staring
At what I am or have been
Ash snows from starlit skies
On charred remnants of fortresses
Burnt down long before my arrival
Nuclear winters stole the dawn
In this place, beyond the skies
Deep in this vortex
At the other side of infinity
Lies a light that I'm running to
I travel dimensions of despair
But I reach and engulf the skies

'Are you good or evil?'

'I wouldn't say that.'
'But why not say that? You'd help a sick and maimed person if you could. Most of us would if we could. But God doesn't.'

I don't want anything to dissuade you from reading until the completion of what I have to say. So I'm asking that you listen and not discount; have an open mind.

in desert wastelands,

and deepest gloom.
You've become fools
through your rebellious ways
and now in the tempest
you stagger as though drunk.
Can I forget
the child I held,
the warm bundle
I taught to walk,
the big eyes I dried
after nightmares and fear?
How can I leave you?
How can I forsake you?
like a fire in my heart.
peace to the far
and peace to the near.
I will heal them.

But none of them belong to me.

I was not a mistake.
It’s strange to think that exactly half of my DNA comes from you, and yet we could pass each other on the street and not even recognize each other.
I’ve never really believed in searching for you, my biological family. I never asked my parents the heartbreaking questions that Hollywood makes small, blue-eyed orphans ask: “Why didn’t my real mother want me?” I’ve never believed in any of that, and I don’t expect that you’d want me to, anyway.
But if we ever did meet, what would we even say to each other? I don’t speak Chinese, and you probably don’t speak English. But, in case you’ve ever wondered about me, here’s a little about myself:
I look different now. When you last saw me, I weighed less than fifteen pounds and could fit inside of a kitchen sink when I needed a bath. But today I am 19 years old and I’m probably taller than you – the nutrition in America is dif
