The Beast

His fangs so long, glow so bright
As they are bared to the light
They are strong and they are fierce
Into your flesh they will pierce
Across forked tongue flames will roll
Inside lives a darkened soul
His wings now spread open wide
Your fear quaking deep inside
Upon your knees you await
Which death will become your fate
Will it be by glossy teeth
Sharp as sword pulled from its sheath
Or by claws that rip and tear
With anger that will not spare
Would the fire now consume
Bringing forth your certain doom
And those wings that blot the sun
Surely show your death’s begun
For your trespass you will pay
This will be your dying day
See the beast you stand before
And hear now the dragon’s roar

Life and Death

Life and Death live within these veins
Constant struggle but neither reigns
One will rise, the other will fall
Still both exist to heed the call
Life will heed to all that is good
Rising from ashes where it once stood
Reigning so brightly where it was once dark
Bringing so much to a site that was stark
But its reign will never last long
And soon more anguish will end its song
For the call of sorrow will bring forth Death
In one fell swoop taking all Life’s breath
This new reign so dark and desolate
Making the end seem so definite
But this anguish will one day fade
And so Death’s reign will then be swayed
Once more the power will shift
In and out their reigns will drift
