We walk alone…

Within our mind...

Though surrounded by people

At any given time

Our life seems empty…

Devoid of love…

Prayers seem unanswered

By the One above

We dwell on the injustice…

Of our past…

Reliving the pain

Misery that lasts

We turn within…

Protected in our shell…

A hurt heart hidden

From this earthly hell

This world feels wicked…

This world feels cold…

Love’s warm embrace

A touch not known

We scream in silence…

A voice not heard…

Seeking… a savior

A comforting word

As time passes…

The shell grows strong…

Pain does not enter

Yet it still feels wrong

The soul is captured…

Held within this net…

Of a body wounded

A mind that won’t forget

A cry for acceptance…

A wish for love…

Necessities of life

All are deserving of

The hope still flickers…

Embers of loves flame…

Burn within

To ignite again

We walk alone…

Within our mind…

Yet surrounded by love

At any given time.
