All In Vain~by Lilian Dipasupil Kunimasa



All In Vain


All in vain,
All the plans I have designed
All the lies with blood I signed
All weapons and bombs aligned
All warriors in death’s posts assigned
All in vain…

All in vain,
Absence of rain in black heavy cloud
The mission I hid under the thick shroud
No one heard the curses I cried aloud
None of my acts I can say I am proud
All in vain..

All is vain,
In lieu of pain nothing but numbness
All deaths have not healed
The chaos I caused had spread darkness
All I feel now in my soul is emptiness
All In vain…

All in vain,
What did my vengeance gain?
Not a drop of anger in me did drain
My hatred left me with greater pain
I am the avenger of justice in vain
All in vain..

Everything was all in vain!

Inspired by David Hall’s ‘Feed the Raven’
