Nightmare

Last night I had a nightmare,
a nightmare I could not bear.
They took me like they did you,
and there was nothing I could do.

No one knew they were coming,
how awful the world was becoming
We stayed where we are
as we had no where to go afar
But I got a sense they were approaching.
Our home
they were soon encroaching
They charged in with machine guns

A million possibilities flashed past my mind
Fear is all I had felt
and it swallowed me from inside.
Clutching on to my fatherís hand
I fulfilled their every demand

With a startle
I woke
the nightmare
I didnít want to evoke
I never wanted to evoke
But I still woke

My night terrors were just the tip
of my own mental limit
The sensation I was exposed to
the vulnerability
to this hostility
is nothing compared†
to how you were bared
Bare of your dignity,
Everyone in the the vicinity.
Bare of your freedom
like a prisoner in a kingdom
Bare of your esteem,
A monster, you were deemed
Insane, you were deemed

How I never wanted to experience
the result an evil influence
But knowledge we seek
from its original source
we attempt to reap
We say we comprehend
but the time is misspent
For we try and try to understand
but we never will
we never can
