Here is another piece of spoken word poetry

Passing through passageways looking for light
lost I have been for all of my life
lapsing into delusions of seeing a vision
an illumination oasis, forgetting I'm in prison
in a desert parched of the water of enlightenment
we scratch a thorny cactus to suck the liquid light, but
our mouths are only whetted, grasping at empty air
hoping beyond hope, despairing beyond despair
we pray for storms of knowledge to wash over our lands
but we carry an umbrella to protect our dry hands
because we're told the water isn't safe to drink
and we know that we're punished anytime we think
for ourselves, our souls, our hearts, our minds
they're taken away, time after time
I know I shouldn't talk, that's a risk I'm taking
luckily I'm a nobody, who cares what I'm saying
but if you said it, and you said it, and you said it too
minds would unwind and questions would come through
but there is no rain as far as I can tell
and this appears to be the landscape straight out of hell
and Lucifer sits on his throne of horrors
casting his captives into the river of fire
inspired, I ran at the king of this dominion
I called along for others, soon followed by a million
the battle was savage, man against minion
no diplomats were called to offer an opinion
burned and blooded I turned to face Satan
he screamed until I was visibly shaken
before long my senses resurrected
and straight at the king my army I directed
he cowered and cried as I stood by his side
my blade at his neck, I let out a sigh
I realized he was one of us, one of God's many mistakes
just an outcast from Heaven, waiting outside the Pearly Gates
