Dust, flesh and bone
I began seeing the heavens
Trapped in human form
A nudge from reality
Would still not wake me
From the delusions I began to worship alone
I mistook man to be the reason why
Stars woke up to shine every night
While all along it was my Creator
Who held the reigns to the rays of light
I began imagining purpose
Where there was no purpose
I began seeing galaxies inside each heart
And I saw the devils inside each life
Always distracted by that heavenly smile
And they would lift up their eyes
And let slip their ugly sides
Dust, flesh and bone
Holding blades, sticks and stones
The Illusions would break
And the heavens would quake
And from these dreams I would wake
And a laugh would escape
From the lips that had smiled
That heavenly smile
Now mocking at my pride
Face the fate you had denied
Cradle your own whimpering mind
Bow down and cower and cry
You are but dust, flesh and bone
Standing before the Creator of these skies
He is the one who created you and I
And he created the heavens and the stars
How silly of you to think they all lie
In a mere human’s ignorant eyes


Hear them, when they say
You are nothing but a disgrace
The weight you carry
Grows everyday
Along with your bod
Rotting away
Such a disgrace
To the society
For you carry a child
From a man
Who’d had a little fun that day
Should’ve known better
Than to dress that way
And walk alone at night
Alone in a pumped man’s way
Now you carry the weight
Of the sin
Which you committed that day
By asking for it
With your provocative ways
Such a disgrace


Have you ever sat in silence
In the dark of your room
With the blood of your brain
On your hands, Running stale
Caking in the ends of your nails
Have you ever sat in silence
And started at the same spot
The splash of red on the wall
Pity dripping from the stain
Like a blood orange sun, spitting rain
Have you ever sat in silence
And stroked the stiffening carpet
What once was green like pretty grass
Now sits in a pool of bleeding walls
Have you ever sat in silence
To think of a newer way
Of making your body pay
For every time it had denied
The efforts you made to end your life
