Waters of Life

The Mystic Realms -Dire Waters
Waters of Life
by Michael Doyle

Navigating the waters of life
From dreams of others comes late
The sacrifices are not in vain
For the dreams and nightmares on the main

To open one's eyes and see
The rebirth needed for eternity
Dreaming of the endless night
The one who is three brings the light

Each rebirth comes from the rain
While immortality is for the vain
Where there are no answers to be found
It in this tangled web, the future is bound

There it is in the tale that Lucifer fell
As just one more death made home in Hell
Seeking to know if all days are the same
Is it pride or avarice that is to blame

First victim, first murder, first story
Cain killing Abel is the nature of fallen glory
Mornings have most meaning for those with sight
Like murders of ravens cawing into endless night

What could possibly go wrong
In this eternal quest for where we belong
Dreams and nightmares lurch into waking world
Talons of blood grip the battle flag unfurled
