Stone Garden

Innocence is lost on me

I will cut and I will bleed

Deadened eyes

Hollowed by what lies in me

Growing out of immortality



For what lies ahead

I try to find my way everyday

In this jungle that man has made

Every breath

Is closer

To my death

And all the years

In halls of learning

Amount to nothing

When I see how the game is played

Broken spirit

Calloused and hardened

Now it's time to take my place

In the stone garden
