Thy Coward Rise Only To Be Defetated

Thou may write behind a dim lampshade, 
Dingy as though appear
The pale Blue walls steered a reliable witness, 
Deeply overrun by echoes of pity 
 thee wonder through the perpetual air of the halls, 
the depth of pain
the influence of such forces shall be withered useless
without the support of a measly keyboard.
Thy coward rise only to be defeated.

Brave thee not
Thy courage dwells in the shadows of a lit screen
Strong words used but yet to be voiced
Relinquish thy existence
The days of coercion shall be no more.
Thy coward rise only to be defeated.

A musical epiphany to thy dismay
Bow not thee shall
Hinge not on a thread of hope
Regard thy an impossible expectation,
Thy coward rise only to be defeated.

Sad fearful moments disappeared into the endless wilderness
Physical power reigns where once deserted
A deliberate victory proclaimed the weak.
Thy coward rise only to be defeated.
