Where empathy has been destroyed
By the belief
That endless grief
We never can hope to avoid.

Who has the words that compel me commit this crime
Freedom is not something just made of bitter dreams
Its built on the foundation paved in good men's screams
As this weekend falls upon us, remember those who died
To protect this country and us, so that we may live with pride
Though we may disagree with the people who govern us
Remember the ones who gave their lives for the "in God we trust"
As we barbecue our burgers, chickens, and our sides
Remember all the veterans hardships and strides
Recall all the people who gave up their lives
So that one day "We the people" can survive
Hunting a Beastly PurposeThe outcome is inevitable, so why are you stalling?Hunting a Beastly Purpose7 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
You knew what would happen; who would win
How could anyone love you? You’ve committed too many a sin.
You are not normal- you monster! You lycanthrope!
Now, in the moonlight, hang by my braided rope!
Don’t feign as if you have a heart
You were born to be alone and miserable from the very start
Living as an empty shell
Eating human souls to temporarily feel well
Harvester of sorrow
Of today and tomorrow
It’s too late to change!
No one could ever love a beast so foul, so strange.
You were a threat

Words cannot express at all
Feelings everyone knows
But no one can explain
Storing them deeply brings insufferable pain
Share them with others and face rejection
But a mystery or a joke brings no objection

Is it just acting if I keep my face masked?
Let’s play pretend; make believe
You and I will both deceive
Until, under the eyes of any sleuth
It becomes undeniable, justifiable truth.

You should know by now, I’m a real go-getter
I’ll be who I am- screw tradition
I’m a woman, on a mission
I’m a huntress, and you’re the buck I’m having for dinner
I know when I see a winner
But cut the chase- go ahead and forfeit
Females excel game of wit
Am I more than you’ve ever seen?
I can be very nice or very mean
I can dress up, I can cook
And I can feign that innocent look
If that isn’t quite enough
I am quite tough
I know- you’re simply flabbergasted
But you’re the only one who’s lasted
If you don’t fall soon, I&
