Abandon All Hope


Nick was a young man with an eager heart

that he gave away willingly

to the kind natured Sarah

They planned out their lives

each second with each other

and with him came a boy

with wide eyes so blue

and a smile of promised grace.


Nick was ready to be a father

but he never got the chance

A man crept through the window

one night while he was out

Not a single thing was stolen

but poor Nicholas' heart

Both mother and child were left in blood

with toys untouched

and a crib used once.


The fairy tale is over

a cruel God lets him live

to drown himself in misery

and find comfort in the devil

who leads him away

to the quickest way out.
