I saw the voice you never spoke
painted on the bathroom wall
I cried the tears you never had
dialed the number you'd never call
I danced the dance you never knew
laughed the laugh you'd hid so well
I sang the song you failed to learn
sold the world you failed to sell
I walk the path you turned from
made the choice you feared
then you sat and yelled at me
and with your lips, you sneered
I never made my choice for you
it was made for me alone
I wanted something more than this
yet still you must bemoan
I saw the shadows in your eye
and the fire at it's edge
I never saw the rain inside
or the dangerous ledge
I marched to the cadence sung
and pushed with all my might
I am proud of where I am
though with you I'll never fight
I do not have to scream
nor must I have to shout
I live inside my dream
and will never see your doubt


 shine a light so bright that all can see
and you will find the joys that echo within me

excellent verse, Des, form the first line to the last.  You should be "proud" of this one.

I agree with Micheal, I liked this very much, from beginning to the end.
Merry Christmas to you Des. : )

Excellent, Des...strong emotion here. It sounds very determined, and I like that.
Good to see you here again!  

Happy Holidays to you!
