There's a place far away
where it rains every day.
The clouds never stop
there's poison in every drop.
That's the price everyone's willing to pay.

There's a place in every mind
where a fat king sits sipping his wine.
He shouts his orders and kills his comdemned.
And there's not one person to befriend.
That king is the way to get us to that place.

There's a place in each heart
where a princess or prince falls apart.
Their passionate lover is gone away
Alive they could not stand to stay.
Again to that place that prince or princess will bring us.
We cannot escape, for we have no trust
in ourselves or each other to keep the rain away.
And this is why, sometimes, in that rainy place we must stay.

The author's comments:
This poem is not a well of my venting my own problems, it is more of an observation of... morals. The king is sort of like arrogance or hunger for power. The prince and princess is like, you know, something along the lines of a crush or just love gone wrong. that type of things. I am in no way sad.
