Life

She comes like a breeze
Carrying the song of war
It is her destiny to live
Yet prays for death in her call

Her wounds wide open
Her eyes like an ocean
Her featherless wings
And her broken heart

The life of a human
So cruel yet fragile
Like shapes in the dark
She claws at your heart

As she begs for the end
Forgetting what is to be
In the dark of her mind
She just wants to be free

Oh how it hurts to live
And how peaceful death seems
Her story grows old
Fated to repeat a million times

And she is swept away
By the storm within her
Made aware of the traitors
In her own mind’s counsel

I can really relate to these lines:

And she is swept away
By the storm within her
Made aware of the traitors
In her own mind’s counsel

wow...I wish I'd written that!
