Enrypted messages

Divinci codes

The prince becomes a King

From talks with a toad

A price you must pay

I'll show you the way

Turn back on our bargain

I would advise that you pay

Decisions Decisions

A choice you must make

Listen to the Heavens

Before you make a fatal mistake

A lifetime of heartbreak

Turns to a shortened death date

I present to you an apple

That I demand to be ate

Your great will be greatened

But your core will be hollowed

I'll leave that out for now

So you're not afraid of tomorrow

Your time no longer a gift

Only days that are borrowed

Your sorrows into hatred

Disappointment into anger

The weight of this decision

Holds more than an anchor

Yes, you will have your desires

But the love you once knew

Is set ablaze in the fire

That is your own selfishness

You can put blame on no one

You did it yourself

How dare you accuse a toad

For your foolish choice

You saw a short cut

And ingnored your inner voice

You knew better

Yet, you still followed the toad

To an entrapping swamp

Left in the void

Where past decisions haunt
