Torturous

Everyone has bad luck from time to time; if your bad luck never ends...there IS another reason.

Doomed and Tortured

What they don't want to do
They do, no self control - Torture

What they don't want to think of
Creeps into their minds - Torture

They say one thing, yet they lie
They can't help it
Though they try
Torture

Can't get ahead, though they try
Can't make heads or tails as to why
Confusion, Doubt, Within and Without
Can't figure out what this life's all about
Tortured

Sowed seeds long ago that are now be reaped
Stole souls, stole lives, stole innocence, stumbled 'sheep'
Never ever dreamed that they would have to pay
Thought to cause misery and then get away

Doomed

Now, no matter what they do
Now, no matter what they say
All their life is ignorance, pain and they say,
"It's racism, it's society, it's haters, it's jealousy..."

No, no they can not see
That what is happening is supposed to be
Yes, yes you will pay for all you do
You will receive all that's coming to you

Carefully, we should live and love somebody else
Think about those who truly love us and not just ourselves
Thoughtfully sacrifice all for the truth no matter what you give up or what you have to do

Then blessings will come and rain down on you
And you will have joy and eternal peace too
In this life, it's what we are called to do
Unless the doomed and tortured one is you...

Have you lied to someone who truly loves you?
Have you treated a soulmate like a petty fool?
Do you lie to those who tell you the truth?
Do you harbor hatred for those who are innocent and true?

Then you KNOW what is waiting for you.
If YOU don't understand....the rest of us do...
So all we can do now is pray for you
For all that you'll suffer and what you'll go through
Just know you did it to yourself - we didn't do it to you.

Yep, I am virtually surrounded by them! Today, though it's all about the SeaHawks leaving for Atlanta today! Don't know if they will win but we will celebrate them regardless! :-)
