Restless Souls

The souls of the dead are calling
Revenge!
The souls of the tortured murmur.

I hear
even when they close my ears
I see
even when they blindfold me.

I want never
to turn back again.
I want
the past forgotten.

The souls won’t let me forget
The souls of the tortured
sob in me
The souls of the perished
cry

Revenge!
Talk!
Write!
in a chorus they scream

Through my pen
blood flows
paper soaked
with tears
all is aflame
the hymn of the righteous souls
is ascending

Listen you tyrants
I am talking to you
repent your sins
you fiends
let the innocents
find peace.
