Mount of Salvation

from by Ben Simon



I stand amidst a ruptured earth
That you tried so hard to destroy
For seven days I did not know if the water was surging or descending

I thought I would never see the sun again
The light partitioned from my eyes
You are a God to man, yet I was formed from the Gods
And the clay you spat upon
As if I was nothing to you

I denied you sleep
So you begrudged my existence with your pathetic attempts
You call yourself a God? You’re a goddamn insignificance.
I bow to no one.

Even in the midst of perdition,
I still have found a way to stand against you
And though I now have nothing, I will persist
With every breath I have left to take

I’ve struggled to stay undaunted
But it is no longer my choice
I am exhausted

Nothing but an exile

In a world I don’t belong
A vagabond with no possessions
Nothing but an exile
In a world I don’t belong to

Wayfaring stranger
The winds and rain have ripped everything apart
Despite being so broken
I am not defeated
I will not rest until I destroy you
I will not cease until you have felt my pain

This world is broken, and destroyed
I walk upon its spine
Like the ancients did before
With no direction
I wander alone
