The poem is below.


I have Sinned
I have eaten from the garden of Eden
Pleasured the sweetness of the forbidden fruit
Served in the Kingdom of The Harlot
With a sign on the front door
"enjoy with responsibility"

Today i confess a great Sin
Within me now, lies a serial killer
A beast feeding on my red blood cells
Death is my friend,Graves are my home
Chaos is the fire burning in my veins
The sweet fruit turned bitter

I blew a kiss
Beautiful roses and butterflies turned away
They used to laugh with me
Now they laugh at me
In darkness like a dog with a leash on 
my neck tied to the branch of a tree
I tried to cut my jurney short
The hidden secret for generation has broken free

Disobedience taunt my mind
while my heart burns in hell
I slipped and fell now i broke 
my back,like an isolated dessert flower on 
fertile soil but does not germinate Seeds

Traveling alone on the road to doom
hoping to see a glow, on the wedding date
I made my vows'till death do us part'
Indeed it will.awaiting rebith is like waiting
for the sun to rise from West and set at East
Ohh, what an ugly Sin to commit 
but a sweet fruit to taste
