From The Shadows

by Rodney A. Brubaker


Hear, I am. Lost in confusion. Trap inside my soul with fear. 

The world I knew. Was just an illusion. It is no longer here.

Wake me from my sleep.

Take me by the hand. 

Comfort tears I weep. 

Help me understand.

Time it passes. Now you are gone. Taken to your dreams. 

I won't forget. As we go on. That nothing's what it seems.

Pain can't be lessened with words.

And the truth it hurts much more.

If love is not the answer.

Then what else is it for?

Feeling sorrow. For everything we lost. Why in this way was I made to see.

Humanity: How we count the cost. Now we know what should not be.

I can't give you what you want. 

I can't make it alright. 

For those who now bear the blunt.

 Don't give up the fight.


Thank you for trying to make the world a better place......
