With the face only a mother could love,

yet she chose not to spare an ounce,

you emerge from a dark and murky palace

and enter the light from which you hide

only to be welcomed to the world in callous

fashion, seeing as you are a beast after all.

The one thing you seek in all this madness

is not death, destruction, greed, or hatred,

but love is all you need and are never given;

so these people, who embrace the light of day

and get on their knees to pray, are forgiven

while the dark consumes their hearts, not yours.
