And there I see a battle rage
that appears to be for me
Hands clenching hard to grip my hope
I shudder silently
Spectres from my nightmare realm
An Angel from a wild beyond
With a Serpent locked in savagery
I struggle to respond
Eternity wields a darkened hand
Lifeblood stains the sun bleached sand
Like sentinals my secrets stand
Against a coruscating sun

What means this battle for my soul
my being tries to scream
Where once stood spears for future deeds
now runs a poisoned stream
Phantom winds lash across my gaze
I see the bitter seeds of truth
The Serpent stands for adulthood
the Angel stands for youth
Storms gather force against the sea
Clouds billow howling screams of glee
Unleashing fey ferocity
to an antromorphic land

And standing with the flames of rage
Moons lost against the night
But there to bathe the tortured soul
a gleam of silver light
The serpent speared through starlit eyes
recoils in rampant fear
The Angel spins and ends the duel
with a thrust of flaming spear
Now hope revived in which to hide
My hands unclench as fears subside
The landscape fades as clouds devide
and the sunbeams dance again
