The Darkness and Light

Shy, sad, lad,
hears lies,
sighs, cries,
wipes eyes,
tries to see whys.
But only knows game,
feels pain, shame; lame,
going insane.
Hopes someone comes
with help to heal bruised
boy, toy,
that he never had, but was.
Is help and change
there from those who
Wants to get away from his
lair, scare;
Hate him, hate me.
Must confide in someone who'll
hide, me from me, for now.
Won't come out until it's safe.
Help me, help you
we must survive
stay alive, thrive, jive.
Nothing matters now
but care of me,
have to be there,
for you, and me.


"No soul is desolate as long as there is a human being for whom it can feel trust and reverence."
George Eliot

No words seem adiquate. This speaks to me as well. The 11-year-old I was felt like this. The adult male still does, except I try to rationalize it.

You will find that peace, I know it. We all will.

Peace and love (and thanks for something to think about... \:\) )

Wow, it's been a while coming but worth the wait. I'm glad you shared this.

I see the jumbled feelings, tripping over one another in the rush to be heard. I've seen that happen to me so often.

I'm glad that it leads up to the Light, too. The Darkness was real, but it was. The Light is.
Nothing matters now
but care of me

David, this is like wow, so much of who I am is in this poem. Thank you for sharing this here.


Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible in not a declaration, it's a dare.
