The Gift of Immortality

from by Ben Simon



I was beaten by the rains and suffered the rivers
While you were consumed by the hatred, committed to me
all was destroyed
rendering me an exile.
Nothing to live, all was destroyed, your global genocide.

Every attempt to rid of me was made
One man in the shadow of the gods
One man in the shadow of the gods
One man, alone

The overwhelming scent from the rotting of flesh
were all that I knew
As I the only left, made my way to survive
deemed worthy of eternal life

It is no gift as you may believe
to be immortal is a burden
Even sadness ends for most
mine is recurring

The dead can escape their mistakes
But I belabor them

Nothing but a slave to the gods
I’ve never regretted life
Nothing but a slave to the gods
I would embrace death now

I would rather die a thousand times
Than to bow at your feet and worship the god
who destroyed the world
Everything that I love, gone
There is nothing but suffering now
