    A spot along the riverside, the morning light that shines anew
    The water lazily flowing through a scar in natures skin
    The grass you wish was greener, covered in a heavy dew
    Imperfections in the world, simple reality without a sin
    To look at natures beauty, with eyes open as the mind
    To pretend that some perfection exists in the growing earth
    Is to miss the truth in playful wind whose breath is intertwined
    With the singing of the birds, in an orchestra of mirth
    A strong embrace, to love the flaws, to make the most of life
    A dance amongst the falling autumn leaves as they cascade
    Celebrate simplicity and transcend beyond the strife
    Sweet dischord in natures song, distorted note in serenade

    A spot along the riverside, i sit and watch the sun begins to set
    The blood that trickles slowly through the cuts across my skin
    The grass now stained in blood, and tears without regret
    To embrace these imperfections is to let this life begin
    I look at scars across my body, gently trace the line that shows
    The painful conflict in my mind, the shadow that extends
    Slowly choking all the hope, suffocating as it grows
    Tearing pieces of my soul apart, my sanity it rends
    Fears embrace that eats away, tries to take me from this life
    Bound in silence, twisted being in the beauty of this place
    One more dance across the skin, celebration with a knife
    A final note, then silence, serenity across my face

    I was actually quite happy with this one... also found it read ok (though not quite as well), when alternating between lines from the two sections... i might put some work into this, to try and get it to read well both ways. Still feel its lacking something though.
