Fate Beats The Drum

I hear the sound of the drum
Beating again and again
My fate stands in front of me
My past stands behind me
You hear the crowd go crazy
You hear them all go wild
A simple no would make them stop
All this could be….
All this would be….
I’ve given my hands to the Lord above
I’ve given my heart to the Devil down below
Those people know
They share the same fear
When will it be my turn?

Foot in front of the other
I stand still as I look upon the crowd
Do they want a slow
Painful
sight to see
Or do they want a fast
quick
sight to see
I breathe slowly
Given every thing I got
I fight for my life
Scream louder over the crowd
And I was put down
This became my fate.

Dad

I’ve seen him cry twice,
in my whole entire life.
I’ve heard him cry once,
while he sobbed on the telephone.
Every single time,
It made him stronger.
When she cheated,
I ran to my room and listened.
The fighting,
The yelling,
The crying…
When she left him,
She took me with her.
I remember the face.
I remember each tear
How it took a second a part
For a new one to form
How his little princess
From that day
Became into what she is today
The distance made pain
The laughter made us sane
The day she left me
I cried too.
We weren’t good enough for her
We felt ashamed.
A letter to her mother,
Telling her how she misses her Princess,
But had to give her up.
Had to
Didn’t have a choice
He fought for his princess
But she made her decision
To run
Far away
Seven hundred and forty-two miles away
Tears
Tears
Missing tears
Missing You
