  Infallible Mortality

By Ms. Cady

If you could see the things I see,
And gaze upon monstrosity,
Your heart would feel the sharpest pain,
And you would never be right again,
I protect the secrets of our minds,
My job being to save mankind,
But humanity will ultimately fall,
Like the crumbling bricks of an ancient wall,
This undoing is all our own,
And we must reap the seeds weíve sown,
Ahh, my child, please donít fret,
Because my job isnít finished yet.
If you could taste the things Iíve tasted,
The taut, cold skin forever wasted,
The taste eternal on your tongue,
Would frighten you, for youíre so young,
The taste of fear is most frightening,
So tangible it burns like lightening,
Etched in your mind so you wonít forget,
The memories will make you retch,
But, darling one, donít be scared,
For Iíll make sure that you are spared,
Iíll take your hand, fingers entwined,
Because I know that you will be mine.
If you could feel the things I feel,
The horrors of sin completely real,
Many a night would be fraught with terror,
Because there is no room for error,
Youíd know the tears that souls have cried,
And seen the faces of those whoíve died,
Your youthful innocence would disappear,
As the end of time approaches near,
But, dear, I hold the answers still,
Iíll be the scroll as youíre my quill.
