Memories of War:

What is this long-lost memory inside?
Where oceans turn; what have we left behind
With star-burned wings out above the sky.
The sleeping sons are lovingly left to lie...

A thousand tears you've cried for all,
Now its time for you to fall!
Will you open up the door,
To the future we ignore?

Are you simply lying broken,
From the memory awoken;
Are you simply living lies,
Bitter taste with ropes you tie...

And the world will soon forget.

Fill my heart with this regret?

For the victims written in stone.

Unspoken sin you now atone...

Yeah I've seen this world where we livin' in pain,
Wrap my body round with chain.
Now we both know we be broken;
Give this man his smokin' token.

Held up guns with both his hands;
Not a boy he's cause he's a man.
Order comes by a suit and hand.
Will you flee or will you stand?

This is a memory of our war,
Of all the things that we can't ignore.
And staying blind to the cries of pain...

Will lonely ashes be what remains?

Aye maties,

As I've stated I'm going back t' basics and so this is actually a song that I wrote yesterday t'gether with me old friends from me rap crew. The part in italics is th' guest rap sung by them and I do the clean vocals (no change in font) as well the rough dirty growls (bold).

My friend raps in a voice similar to snoop dogg's smooth style so I thought it worked very well with the overall chemistry of the piece ^^ His piece is in italics.

It was a lot of fun to do this song (gotta admit that) even if the topic might be over done, I was happy to explore it and doubly thankful for the chance :3

Enjoy mates.

So now I behold your latest work of art and I am again impressed. The same well-made rhymed couplets, the same neat slanted rhyme as an opener. The bold type is surely an emphasis, to bring something to the other's mind.
The words selected for the rhyme pattern show good poetic sense. I caught that from the stanzas in bold type especially.
Then there is the question ye demanded mid-way, which rings with a bit of scorn or ....
"Fill my heart with regret?" I dare to say, No.
Back to common print and a different tone, but still effective. I can only conclude that you and I know our stuff.
What do you think?

You Write so many and yet this one was lacking in it's Impact I have heard others close to the likes and I am saying it is good but needs some improvement.

Keep up the good work and remember that this is only one of many opinions that are to be shared.

I wish you the best of luck and send you my best wishes for more of your work.

It is a joy for me to write about and read your work, Because each one I read brings me to a conclusion.... that conclusion is something breathtaking can open the eyes of even the most stubborn.

Good job and Best of wishes

Well that's a wonderful goal. You might want to take a look at my recent works then, it's much more focused around lyrics than my older works (.3.).

Of course, no obligations, thank you again though ^^

one thought comes to mind from reading this... Make it into a song. it sounds like something dragonforce might have made. so this would make an excellent song.
