While recovering from dental surgery where I had all my teeth removed and dentures fitted immediately, I went into a kinda spiral of depression and wrote the following, plus wrote a bitter song, and also painted a bitter painting... pain is definitely not bringing out the best in me... but I'm healing fast, which is good... better moods coming, I hope...

A LAMENT 4 MERCY FRM GOD

By Raine Carosin

17.02.2012

WHY MAKE ME

IF YOU GONNA BREAK ME

WHY TAKE ME

IF U GONNA HATE ME

WHY THIS HELL

WHEN HEAVEN IS A WORD AWAY

WHY NOT TELL

OR IS IT SOMETHING YOU CAN'T SAY

WHY BE VAGUE

WHEN IT COMES TO THE TRUTH

WHY OPAQUE

WHEN YOU COULD BE COUTH

HOW UNKIND

TO TAKE THE MOTHER FROM THE CHILD

HOW SO BLIND

TO TAKE THE LOVING FROM THE WILD

I'M BREAKING UP

MY HEART AND BONES CAN'T TAKE NO MORE

I'M LYING DOWN

THE PEDAL'S TO THE FLOOR

I CAN'T WAIT

TO BE FREE FROM HELL'S IMPRISONMENT

TO LIVE WITH GOD

IN FULL COMPLIMENT

"IN THIS HALL OF MIRRORS

GODS SOUND AND ABOUND

DON'T BE FOOLED BY THE IMAGES

THEY'RE JUST FOOLING AROUND

SOMETIMES A GAME

TO PASS

THE TIME

SOMETIMES A PEN

TO PEN

THE RHYME

SOMETIMES A RAKE

TO LEAVE

THE GROUND

IN THIS UNIVERSAL

HALLWAYS

THE GODS ABOUND

DON'T BE FOOLED

UNTIL YOU SEE

SOMEONE YOU RECOGNISE

AS ME:

I'M FILLED WITH MYSTERY

THE MIRRORS WRITE

IN ECSTACY

DON'T BE FOOLED IN THIS HALL OF MIRRORS

ONE IS REAL

ALTHOUGH THE IMAGE SHIVERS

THROUGH A LONG NIGHT

TO FILL THE DAY

AND THE LIGHT ECHOES

IN THIS HALLWAY

AND SO YOU SEE

BUT DO NOT SEE

THE SHATTERED IMAGE

THAT WAS ME

BUT LOOK AGAIN!

I'M IN YOUR VIEW

AS GOOD AS NEW

AS GOOD AS YOU

DON'T BE FOOLED, MY DEAR FRIEND

THIS HERE NOW IS NOT THE END

THE SUN WILL RISE, THE SUN WILL SET

EVEN THOUGH WE'D WANT TO FORGET

THE PEN WILL WRITE

THE RAKE WILL LAUGH

THE PEN CRIES INK

THE RAKE'S BLOODBATH

SO WHAT, THE MIRRORS DON'T TELL LIES

AND IN THE DITCH A SLIVER LIES

SO DON'T BE FOOLED BY LIGHT

THAT DOES NOT SMILE

FOR IT HAS WARNED OF ANOTHER MILE

FOR YOU TO REACH YOUR GOAL AND DREAM

IN THIS MIRRORED HALLWAY

YOU CAN SMILE AND DREAM..."
