A Barren Antelope

____A Barren Antelope (Unedited)____

A barren antelope

Visits the world of the living

She is searching for the Messiah’s hands

To bless her womb with living

Kids, kids, everywhere, she

Wants to bear her own,

She wants to be a mother

And be called mother antelope

She cry and cry and cry over the Kilimanjaro

And Everest 

She weep across the Atlanta searching for

Messiah’s hands.

She want it, she want it

She want a good image

A bad image to be buried

To be buried and a good image to live on.


She wants a life to live

She wants a heart of her own

Who will help her out

Now that the rumour have

Spread that the Messiah 

Had gone…

Gone for life

To another life

Shadowy and deep

Yet to be know by Many.

Yet to be visit by all .

A berry paradise

A cherry light.

    I feel strange saying "good luck on the contest"... but I guess this contest is all for fun's sake... lol. I'll be honest it started off fairly well. But the ending was just random and a bit nonsensical. There is one that I really wanna post for the contest, but I can't remember if I deleted it or not out of sheer embarrassment... anyway... interesting stuff! I think you captured the essence of the contest :)
