Get Rid Of The Advertisements

Where?
 
Surrounded by murky shadows of the unfamiliar
I find myself misplaced in the depths of solitude
riding precariously through a viscous blizzard
Is this only a delusion or is it my destiny?

Behind me I can still see the tombstones
barely visible through the fluttering snowflakes
the bus leaves no tracks behind it
Like a flying gray bird in an ethereal dream

I know my life on this earth is finished
and I am on my way somewhere
I always thought it would be warmer
with angels to greet me at the door

Smiles of gladness weaken in thoughts of lunacy
I see winos warming their hands on the corning
and frightened old ladies in tattered clothes
peering out from dark corners

Hairless children wandering in white gowns
looking for their new hospital beds
malformed babies abandoned to mistreats
with no one to ease their burden

Where is the merciful god who rewards the rightous
or the feared demon in a world full of fire and grief
but I see neither as i approach the shadowy place
scratching and clawing to rise above this obscurity.
