This one was written in college... English hours are pretty useful for this kinda stuff... =)

I sit in the corner, dark and cold
Unable to move my hands
I wait an eon to hear my fate
Fate, my life, it commands.

I realize my mistakes
Blinded by greed.
The waves consume me
To avenge every evil deed.

Cleansed of sin, my soul is clean
It shimmers like the morning sun
With renewed relentlessness
A new life has begun.

The sin haunts my body
And plagues every inch of it.
Indulgence got the better of me
And led me to the end of the bottomless pit.

The Soldier

This one was inspired by this book called "The Family" by Mario Puzo... Thanks to Deepak for lending me the book!!!

Anyway, here goes..

Inside me, a bubble breaks,
like a volcano it gushes through
Ecstasy is a heady feeling
seemingly false, yet undeniably true.

The battle stretches, long and dreary
Success comes at every venture
Jealousy and envy surround me,
waiting to swoop down like a vulture.

A rivalry brews, the plot thickens
the enemy conspires against me
Opportunistic, they wait to strike
But it is me that they aspire to be.

They grab every chance and ploy they can
to the eye of a soldier, everything's a battle.
I fight till the end comes haunting
I fight till the last of my bones rattle.
