False Prophet

The false prophet
he lives his lies
Building his fences
he fantasizes
In his smile
A harsh decree
never really caring for you and me

In the cruel distance
his mind can see
Neighboring valleys
for those who flee
Into his arms
to be saved
always from fear they can't explain

The real prophet/seeker spends his life mending lives, and hiding the extent of his true vision

Freed from his/your prison of expectation, he rides the wave of contemplation, and sees the real true, within me and you/it's all within yourself

Fear and anger
his bread and wine
Capitalizing on the time
of your weakness
He will proceed
to consume your every need


Seeking new new victims
to build his pride
Always embracing those who hide
and seek comfort within themselves
Tempting them with freedom from their shells

In his cold clutches
from punishment
He will save you
with sentiment
of his fake kindness
you can't flee
Never really caring for you and me
