The Dark Road

Why So Serious?


“When I am walking a dark road, I am a man who walks alone.”
-Iron Maiden (Fear of the Dark)


When fear lies in the heart of men,
They become bestial in nature,
Cowering in the dark, biding their time
Waiting for the slightest provocation,
To attack before they are found.

The road ahead is shrouded by a black veil,
And only one may pass safely through,
Once chosen, there is no turning back,
From these doors that lead to doom.
On this darkening road I must walk alone.

You find yourself caught in the spider’s web,
Fear is no altruist in choosing its victims.


Food for the Soul


Transported to another world,
With the sound of music,
Ringing in my head,
Like a single voice of sanity,
Alone reaching through,
The deepest wells of dementia.

Guitar solos taking me,
Into dimensions undiscovered,
Drums beats mocking my feet,
For all I can do is tap them,
Voices so strong, as they sing,
Out from the depth of their heart.

Music can bring peace,
In the midst of violence.

The Great Gods,
Can never be forgotten,
For they bring with them:
Hope, freedom, anger, pain,
Joy, truth, wisdom,
Insanity, chaos,
Truth, lies,
And so much more,
Than we can imagine.

I bow down to the pasts gone,
The present,
And futures to come.
Thank you for the deepest,
Reaches of your soul.


Note #1: The above is a tribute to all my favorite bands (I might have missed tagging some of them). Music has a way of healing and bringing a sense of sanity in people, well at least for me.

Note #2: The image is not mine (most images on this blog aren’t mine). Though of course I wish it was mine 😉

Note #3: I don’t think this tribute is any good, but well, I’ve been feeling greatly in awe of some bands recently, and just wanted to put it in words, though the words just didn’t come out right. 😐
