Two Strays

Name your feelings

Identify them as madness

Your beating heart bleeding

Overloaded with aggression

 

The ground shifts beneath your feet

The air thickens as you try to flee

Spoken rage but unheard of

A man trapped in this hellhole

 

Thief and liar

Filthy criminal

Born in a dumpster

Been looking everywhere for a cure

You stab yourself deep just to be sure

were you raised around the truth?

 

Day and night

Scavenging through leftovers

With teeth of a canine

Biting hope to satisfy your hunger

 

Grew up in this world

Little safety, broken order

Shots fired in the street

No rest for the wicked

 

Taking lives is easy

God knows how many you’ve killed

And here you are

Singing your little warrior to sleep

Kissing him good night

Anything you’d do and give

Any more soul you’d kill

Just for another year to raise him right
