Lost From Within

Lost From Within

A Poem by Forgotten

We're not the people outgoing,
We are the soldiers with disease,
Let us fall upon the barricades,
Where are our hearts won't cease to bleed,
Cannot run from where we trespass, 
In the cornfields that we tread,
Bring on the torrents that will take me,
Like a bullet to my bed.

Drinking moonshine on the harbour,
While we bathe in our brothers blood, 
We are monsters without a doubt in hell,
But we'll still say we're born anew,
Let the children follow us from their beds, 
We'll take them out to sea,
Drown them in the sins of our forefathers,
In the land where we are not free. 

Watch the mercy in their faces,
As their skin dissolves to dust,
We are the unforgiven spectres,
In this world destroyed by rust,
Can we say for certain that our lives will be remembered,
Or will we take a step back and say,
We are all lost from within.

Lost from within..powerful title. Like a tumor eating its way out.

I loved this! ( not just 'cuz of all the blood and amazingly displayed imagery ) . ' we are monsters without a doubt in hell ' . We all want to surpass the world, noticed or not, we all try, though we're not infinite, and the world is oblivious, still we try.

I loved this and it was so easy to read. Love how the last line really did tie it all together.
