Black are my thoughts
as I roam
through the darkness of life
Everybody is looking
for the bright light
at the end of the tunnel
I'll settle for a shade of grey
or a tarnished lining
for my cloud

If I play my music loud enough
maybe it will drown out
the jagged screams and screeches
of the song of life
Everybody sings a private song
noone is meant to hear
so there is no harmony
and if I can't help but hear it
then I must scream out loud

With every breath I take
I'm that much closer
to dying
Another morning of sunshine
leads to
another mourning of crying
All my questions
unanswered
for there is no truth
without lying
and only my bitterness
keeps me trying
Unfulfilled desires
and stubborness
keep me trying

Strong, passionate words. Excellent poetry in my books! hey - keep trying, everyone can have the light at the end - I think it's also due in part to our effort.

thanks for the kind words Severn...I'm optimistic that the light I am looking for is out there for me to find eventually

I do like this so it needs to go back up - indeed Rascal, we're all looking for our lights.

I liked this, Jeff. Dark, searching, determined. Very powerful.

------------------
It matters not how strait the gate;
How charged with punishments the scroll;
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.
--W.E. Henley
