What Lies Beneath
What lies beneath?
The ground under our feet
Stands a dark world that resides there?
Waiting for the perfect day to appear
Today when the ground broke
It left us with a knot in our throats
Because we knew that the gates of hell
Had just gotten out of its rotten shell
Now the darkness we’re used to
Has even a darker hue
What will pop out from the shadows?
No one will ever quite know
Until we’re standing face to face
With something that didn't show its trace
Though it’s there waiting to give us our turn
To throw us to what lies beneath into a fire that burns….
Don't get scared now!!
