Vengeance~by Lilian Dipasupil Kunimasa


 

 

Vengeance

Once I donned the perfume of the innocent
Thinking it will shield me from evil’s intent
Yet when you recognized the purity scent
You came and tore down my peaceful tent

Your claw hands my virginal gown did rent
My mind to your devious wishes force bent
My soul to hell’s sulphuric kingdom sent
And my sanity to Limbo’s voidness went

I came back and wore the musk of the beast
My turn to bring havoc to the west and east
I watched as the hyenas and buzzards feast
For the past I know I should not care the least

But why instead of success I feel pains of defeat
Why do I feel numb from head down to my feet
Why have my heart and pulse end their beat
Ashes poured on my head and in the mud I seat

I am the victim but where is the sense of justice
I had my vengeance but where is my peace
All debts been collected yet trouble won’t cease
Tell me God Above what did my spirit miss?
