Hopelessness of the hopelessness
Last and sad light of a soul in gloom
Life is a vain dream that life takes
Full of gentle sorrowful afflictions

More beautiful is the
Brilliancy of the snowing sky
Than the strong magnificence of success
More human is the
Wish the feeds us
Than the children's clear laughs

I , follow my lead, misunderstood
Without belief nor love, like a lost man
In the cruel certainty that nothing matters

Sometimes a bird comes singing
But he passes by, and I follow my way
In the never-ending sadness of a dead soul




 "Only in the dreams , is that man can truly be free
It was always thus and always thus will be"

I loved that movie, and now to your poem...wow... I really loved this,
fantastic images that were beautiful even if the mood was tragic. great poem.

A very dark poem, and so well-written and expressed!  I do hope that now you have found happiness in your life.

"Sometimes a bird comes singing
but he passes by, and I follow my way
in a never-ending sadness of a dead soul"

Wow!  What a line, what an ending, I relate to such an emptiness.

Take care,

Well this is certainly an interesting way to look at things ... when quality of life dips to where nothing matters I prefer to think of it as a lost soul ( still has a ray of hope )
exceptionally well done

thanks everyone!!!
and, well you can say that I am yet a lost soul, but don't worry I am already seeing the light in the end of the tunnel!
Again thanks!
