Trading Souls

If I could turn the wheel of time,

I'd fly through the clouds and light a fire with the comets -

Move over all the hatred that feels my soul -

What little compassion remains

Soaks through the crimson sky.

If I could open another door and take another life,

I'd ask for mine to be erased and forgotten -

Sacrifice whatever important mark I've left on the world,

Which isn't really much.

If I could give my parents another daughter,

One that's perfect and with a high I.Q. -

Don't you think I would?
