Death hangs in shame

Death hangs it’s head in shame here today
For it helped a cause
It brought about the dawn
To the innocent lives lost

The little one wonders aloud
Did it mean something
When they saw me battered
Did it cloud their morning?

Those who say it was my fault
Who say I had it coming
Am I real to them?
Was I ever breathing?

Frozen like a cold river
I lie in the dark
The devil walks past
And burns a hole in my heart

As they cry and weep
Covering my clothes ripped and torn
I wish I could tell them all that in these lands

I was dead before I was born…
