The morning waves to the night's dark

Trees, upon their dying barks
Dogs, brawling over a piece of bone
The air's filled with cries and moan

It's the death's cradle of eternal sleep
It's never too late to get up and weep
Rise and shine Or give-up and whine
It'll never leave you, in peace again

It's your death's cradle of eternal peace
Just tuck in and be and all will cease
Rise and shine Or give-up and whine
You'd end-up being neither yours nor mine!

The lullabye is now elegy
What suffers, is vitality
Mirrors showing the faces, gone
I've got no mind to just move on

It's the death's cradle of eternal sleep
There's no way you can ever have a peep
Nobody, is your destiny
Give up and plead on your knees

It's your death's cradle of eternal peace
Your legs are locked without the keys
Nobody, is your destiny
Give up and don't take chance, any!

It's the death's cradle of eternity...

Not bad at all, sounded more of a Slayer/Anthrax track I could bang my head against! Keep that thoughts on the keypad flowing... keep writing - keep on going!

Gee, you should change the title of your blog. Heavy topics being hit.

Reminded me of the W H Auden's poem, 'Funeral Blues', recited in the movie '4 weddings and a funeral'.

Good rhyme and rhythm.

@ ramm..

"LIGHTER SIDE"- Irony.. :) i know.. But see... only when the mind is light, thoughts could be deep and clear.. that's the interpretation!
