The poem is below.


Dreams of darkness
comes the black birds 
that are crying in the fields 
the birds has told so many lies 
that Dark Angel taken the home
to a place they will never forget,

Oh, little black birds 
look what you have done !
the bird see death right in the eyes
death sitting in a nest right by their side
he is the one that will take you 
to darken places 
you will have to face each place
no matter how painful it gets,

He is the one who will make you cry
day and night
he will make you feel you are almost dead
he will scare you to your last breath 
the black bird 
that stands around are hidden crowd 
Oh Black Bird
there are no way out ,

shadows of darkness is over you
that holds power over every move of you
Oh, black bird
do you feel your loneliness yet?
to you feel your emptiness
you are found and bound 
locked away in your cage 
water you will always crave ,

you will have a mirror of your ugliness 
you will have to pay for all you have done 
that kept loved ones always on the run, 
Life is a beautiful gift 
until you take that away 
Oh, black bird 
look what you have done !

you whispered lies way too many times
to keep other birds on your side 
your secrets are deadly 
and full with fears 
to all who stands so near
soon that to will despair from you
the atmosphere will no longer be at peace,

Oh, black bird
you are now caught 
you will never be free 
from darken dreams .
