Rancid Beast

Rancid Beast

Now that you have fallen passed the point of no return
Given up on all that once mattered  
Find the courage to resurrect yourself
Bend the bones that have been stiffened by fear and hate
Look up to let a ray of sunlight quench your soul

You wear no crown of thorns
Your flesh has not been bloodied by the scourge
Nails have not pierced your questioning hands
A lance has not penetrated your tired corpse
Remorseful tears flow not from your empty eyes

Life still flows within those callous veins
Aether yet animates the spirit within
Bid farewell to the demons that once brought you guilt-filled pleasures
Feed the rancid Beast with love
Seal his fate with a simple Amen.

Thank you,
Joseph Pede
