“Watch your thoughts, they become your words; watch your words, they become your actions; watch your actions, they become your habits; watch your habits, they become your character; watch your character, it becomes your destiny.”-Lao Tzu

I watch you fall, crash, and burn

The ashes of your bodies scattered askew

Oh why, oh why did I call the command

The command that led to your bitter end


It's for the best I believed

It needs to happen

I see the bodies now

And know that all I thought was wrong


The bodies are scattered

The lives are lost

Never to fly again

And it's all my fault


This feeling of guilt hanging over my head

Rather the home that came to an end

Your bodies fell to be ignored

No one cares that your lives were lost

No one but the one that caused the end


I am sorry for calling the command

I am sorry for your lives coming to an end

I hope that you will spread your wings again

I hope that I will see you again

I came up with this on the spot, and I am aware that it's not that good. I will be going back and editing this piece, but I needed to get this out of my system. I promise that I am not a killer. Let me know what you guys think this piece is about! I'll say in the comments if you want to know.
