Everyone and No one

No one has ever suffered loss
No one has ever endured pain
No one has ever been shunned
No one has ever been falsely blamed

Everyone is innocent
There are no gossips here
There is no puffed up false bravado
Covering over fear

No one is in the back room
No one is whispering low
No one is plotting and planning
To lay somebody low

Everyone is happy
There is no sorrow here
There are no wrongs continued
To cover over tears

The evening sun is going down
The wind is blowing in
What was in our heart in the beginning
Will be our reward in the end

This world as seen through amber

To give into evil
Is but to give into its ways
It always starts with something small
And then builds day after day

Evil has many minions
Some that snip and bite and smirk
They're like smaller demons
Glad just to be an arrogant jerk

And then one of them gets a taste
For blood and flesh and power
And gradually his inclinations obsess
Getting darker hour after hour

And he goes after any who would
Be the wielder of any light
He wants to bring it down dim it out
Take it from others sight

That to him is an accomplishment
That to him is something to achieve
To him the truth is a lie
And to stand strong is only done to deceive

It's amazing how shallow evil can be
But equally so when it comes to relentlessness
It can when given the chance snuff hope out
But is equally satisfied with endless pettiness

The battle field goes on forever
Only above ground is there a soul to save
Come the final clash of sword and shield
There's only if we were brave

Helz yes baby

Yeah I've been standing on the cliffs of mortality
With the winds of eternity cutting lines on my face
But I still will my way each and every day
And it's not often an easy and relaxed pace

But I do what I can when it comes to training
I run I spar I sweat and push it to achieve
I hold myself to a code for those around me
That I do not lie mislead or deceive

I show some wear it's true
But I've got some strong years left on this frame
I wear my scars and age right out front
I can still go from embers to a roaring flame

But most important I've learned to appreciate
Others who have paid more than a few dues
And when I’ve been privileged to look out their windows
I have often found hard fought hard won hard earned

Astonishingly beautiful views
