Things Aren't As They Seem
D Donely

Those who cheat, are thieves
Fools, always lie
They who cry, deserve remorse
And those who kill, should die

Those who corrupt are not strong
They who cry, are not weak
Listen closely to your heart
And think before you speak

The undead don't always hide
Those alive don't always bleed
Step strong and watch your back
-Silence your hungry greed

Remember time doesn't stand still
And the old don't always wither
Those who love, don't always tell
And they who show fear, quiver

All that is gold doesn't glitter
Those who wander aren't always lost
-Let your heart burn with desire
And grow cold with the timeless frost
