blade in my hand

i stand alone
with a blade in my hand
cutting thru the streams of time
and line
making sense of the words written
giving weight to the ones that are heard
slashing the blade harder after every line
on ever turn of life
color red is all over for not only i
they too have lost an eye
how far will i survive
how long will they bear a tongue
sun on the rise count the phases of twilight
its my time to make these words
into blades from ashes of bone
shields up for they wont give
without a fight
blades bones and gashes
i still stand alone
with a blade in my hand
cutting thru the streams of time
and line
loud will be the cry
for all will lose sometime
prophecy says
in the end there shall be one
hence i stand alone
with a blade in my hand
asking you all
adhere now or lie below
