lost girl

By manunkind

feeding off of blood and death

steal away a babies breath

hearts of ice and hearts of stone

we stand together


we stand alone

drink a drought of fear

energy replenished

feed off of an enemies tears

i am viking

from land we flee across oceans blue

seek refuge to view a view

we run from the very thing we burn

feast with me, celebrate your own destruction

we are free yet trapped in the chains of belief

with a feast our "friends" will be decieved

soil brown and dark green hues

destroy all to view a view

i am pilgrim

heads bow down to golden crowns

monuments created never will fall down

a culture based on second life

built with virtue,

destroyed by strife

gods of fields and gods of plunder

gods control life, the sky, the thunder

life maker or breaker snakes its way

across the sands

brings hopeful food to needy hands

i am egyptian

nose in the air

skin so fair

on which land

mother nature glares

off with her head!

i the mere peasant

hear all

heres to nothing!

cheers to nothing!

off with her head!

the queen, our bible

our holy testament

law flows from her lips

words tainted are stone

the rosetta stone


to doom we are prone

with stiff conviction

and hollow, yellowed eyes

long live the queen!

let us drink to demise!

with rose tinted words we depart

we want the world!

for our queen-

our fleshy, wounded heart

i am british

indignity, this land is ours!

half assed claims

our land, our power!

clashing beliefs besides one thing,

freedom! freedom! our hearts sing!

industrial armies, atomic doom

shrieking kids lie, assume.

poison factories deal out death

fast food we call it,

truly named: "life theft", "health theft"

i want

i need

fashion labels

needy is what?

huh? disabled?

we are the enemies

other cultures, a hanky, on which we SNEEZE!

the big fish in a series of seas

hatred veiled from us

to the adventurer revealed

steal people, steal ideas

not rightfully ours

culture destroyed, devoured.

we do nothing

we do all

no matter the plight or cause

pointed out are our flaws.

a reckless two year old girl

among the aged, haughty men

for every victory,

on a platter our wrong doings are tenned.

i am american.

i am a lost girl

floating from culture to culture

florence, shanghai, malibu

i am a melting pot,

flavors clash, THEY'RE ANGRY TOO!


i shall live in my mind,

visions of belonging

have been denied

my own culture, a black hole

is there a person in all the world

who is truly whole?
