The Soft Machine

Birthed from blackness, 9 months unseen,
Enters the world, the soft machine

It's circuits cast of blood and will,
Each synapse bred to live and kill,

The soft machine, it's programs strive,
To keep the march of flesh alive

Mechanical empires, constructed death,
A border crossed, can mean no less

The soft machine, it's hard empire,
At odds against its own desire.

When light of day cascades to night,
The softest dreams paint lost delight.

Yet paced decay and time infernal,
The soft machine is not eternal .

When you put an apostrophe in "it's," you're indicating that it's a contraction (i.e. "it is.") If you're using the possessive pronoun "its," you don't need an apostrophe.

Have you considered a career as a spoken word artist?
