EVERMORE





In the barren wasteland of evermore,

unfathomable evil dwells.

Awaiting the unwary at the grottos door.

Signaled by seven bells.

The first bells sounds with a newborns cry,

as the mother lies bleeding and dead.

For hopelessly loving, not knowing why,

her lover bashes in her head.

The second bell sounds as a poor man dies.

Frozen and silent to his grave.

Alone in the street, his body lies.

Had pity sent a blanket to save.

The third bell sounds with a slamming door,

and heartbreak within its walls.

For the loving hearth that was there before,

the adulterous heart therefore apalls.

The fourth bell peals with a thiefs sly hand,

the wronged man crying with despair.

For all the dreams that had been planned,

were stolen in a moment then and there.

The fith bell sounds with an innocents tears,

and hate in a mothers face.

As more bruises the child bears,

for the mother, hell holds a special place.

The sixth bell rings with a judges gavel,

to prison the innocent will go.

A crime still to unravel,

only the guilty will know.

The final bell sounds with a protesting voice,

'What have I done?' does it say.

The victims this day do rejoice,

for your arrogance, in full you will pay.

For Evermore.
