Power

by khajiit

Power is a filthy poison
for which there is no cure
It steals the soul and taints the life
and can make one quite impure.
Power vibrates in the beast
its sanity has gone
now it bleeds and weeps of greed
and thinks there is no wrong.

So take your need and power’s lust
and choose your victims wise
Scream your battle cry aloud
and shape your prey’s demise.

Demean the different, out and in
and make their life a hell
Carve wounds with words into their soul
and in your hate they dwell.

Destroy those who oppose your will
with shouts and strikes and sin
Claim that you love them as you do
and quickly you shall win.
Torment the child who is small
and make them yearn for death
break them down into your toys
and brag with boastful breath.
Take your need for rich and wealth
and suck the others dry
and wallow in your rusty gold
as they slowly bleed and die.

Tame your child with angry fists
and belts, while angry eyed.
Destroy your daughter’s innocence
and strip away her pride.

 

Man’s need for power has no bounds
it’s devil cries for more
Its books of the past drip in blood.
Man is rotten at the core.

I feel like this is a chant of some sort. Tis splendid. I’m going to print it and put it on my wall. Thank you for the beautiful post. Mmmm…..well…it’s beautiful to me at least. Not saying I revel in your pain. I just like the wording.

If you wrote this, it’s damn good. And spot on the money – power is a fucking acid that corrodes people from the inside. But there is a cure for it; letting go and giving it up. Nobody actually has any power. It’s all a figment of the collective imagination of society. All we really are is a bunch of mites on a little blue speck.

Yeah, I did write this. I tend to write when I’m depressed and angry… so there’s no surprise I wrote this at work! 😀

Damn skippy. You should print it out on some parchment paper and mail it to your boss when you quit/get a better job somewhere else. I mean, unless you need a reference. Then, post-date it first.

Damn, this is good.
Do you mind if I save this?

By all means! It means a lot that it’s appreciated!
