My empty facade

My empty facade;
Sisyphus laughs at my load;
Invisible tears.

I've never held hands

I've never held hands;
Does no one see my demise?
Can no one save me?

A lifelong horror

A lifelong horror;
What sent me down this dark road?
No place to call home.

Of things politic

I'm a real liberal. Real liberals don't vote.

Yet the reality is we vote every day with our hearts. Even in the time of the military dictatorship of the Japanese shogunate, the will of the people was always a concern.

In modern times, Stalin - who killed an estimated 30 million in paranoid rampages - was a slave to a carefully crafted public image. "Daddy Stalin" was so effective that oftentimes appeals were sent to him by his unknowing victims.

A man who refuses love will have himself for an enemy. And then he has brought war to the world.

One man's war can become a nation's, and then the world's.

Such is the self-loathing world where a man's power is measured by the number of men willing to commit murder for him.

Kanji Characters

Kanji Characters
Flowing freely from my brush;
Flowers in prison.

Heroes and cowards

Heroes and cowards,
Scarred by tears of battles that
Rape the souls of men.

Autumn colors change

Autumn colors change;
Nature's cycles bring forth life;
My life standing still.

Imagine me dead

Imagine me dead;
Worms crawl through my eye sockets;
What of my life then?
