"Find The Light"



It's all that I can see.

Whenever I see any form of light.

It is faded by something in its way.


I hate the thing that's blocking it.

It makes me feel even more sorrow.

I feel like I will never be able to be the light.

All I will ever be is darkness that no one likes to be near.


Whenever I try to tell someone

I am interrupted by the article that keeps me in the darkness.

I listen to any sort of help that I can find

But all I hear are low voices knocking me down even more.


I hope that one day

I will be able to see and feel the light.

But until then I will have to fake it

And make myself light up when all I feel is nothing but darkness.
