BALEFUL BLINDFOLD, by Meghan Dwyer.
Human or demon, with the common face,
Who are you with many forms?
Changing so much, your fruits i cannot trace
Till every trust is torn.
Roses in hand you freely give
But in the other you hold a stake,
Denying the blossoms a chance to live
Whilst you turn the pedals fake.
Bearer of salt, hideous and thin,
Drying the heart to coal,
Who are you, leaving darkness within
Even the most precious soul?
Massive creature, robed in gray,
Who are you who prowls around?
Gripping a noose that fails to fray
But swings souls to the ground.
Black is the veil you throw over eyes,
Portraying the future as vast.
You make God's promises seem like lies
And cause faith to flee so fast.
Gullible being, wild and young,
Traitors i've failed to detect.
Who am i, who with bitterness walked along?
From despair's grip, myself i don't protect.
Carelessly in my face has flapped the veil
Whilst i've known not the earth's ways nor rules.
Too many times do i let them prevail.
Hello, my name is Fool.
