Dark We Are

The Devil’s keeper we all are.

Spend our happiness in the night.

In our addictions, we live.

Drown in our depression.

Breathe jealousy the same as air.

Only happy with misery as our company.

Rude thoughts prevail over understanding.

Compassion for no one but ourselves.

Victims we are and the world our assailant.

We collect friends as trophies.

Our enemies we envy more than despise.

The only good we do, we do for ourselves.

We only help me, myself and I.

The world owes us everything and from us it better not expect a thing.

Whoever said we were innocent lied to protect themselves.

The Devil’s keeper we all are, don’t be fooled.

Our hearts dark souls for selfishness.

Dark our past eclipsed by our darker futures.
