Buried deep within a tomb

Lies the truth he buried inside.

Running away never quite answered

What he was never able to hide.


Secrets left in a garden

Fell upon the stars at night.

It wasn’t what he carried within

It was the fact that nothing was right.


Sheer force stopped the stillness

Darkness always keeps it at bay.

Life decreases meaning in death

Demands it stays that way.


A cross is lifted upon his land

He never once asks why.

But freedom comes to those in life

That in death, learn to fly.


Tears fill an empty field

Now he remembers the past.

The lies he told between the truths

Have now become his last.
