Beautiful skin..

Boy you have such beautiful skin
It's holding all the pain within.
Hold on, hold on to what you've got
Prepare yourself it's not a lot.
Where is the love that you have earned
Lay twisted in the fires that burned.
Boy you have such beautiful eyes
The windows to this child's demise.
An aperture to this cursed gloom
Death's overpowering cheap perfume. 
The screams and wailing hacks and cuts
That echoes through the village huts.
Don't come out from your hiding places
Do not reveal your tear stained faces.
Boy you have such beautiful skin
But what's this hell you're living in?
Man has no mercy for the frail
If God is love, where is he now?
