I'm but a bird
in a guilted cage
they see not my sorrow
they feel not my rage

They pretend no reason
for my hate at their treason
they remember no memory
of that long ago season

Like bittersweet venom running cold
I'll always be young while they be old
they'll meet their judgement sure before I
they'll face truth ... they'll be told
a thundering verdict from on high
they'll hear it sure ... they'll hear it well
the wrath of the sentence

... join me in hell

dear Shyshark,

i peer into your cage,
through the bars of my cell.
from here i can feel your rage,
but i can't join you in hell.
it's a bottomless pit of misery and sh!t.
and i cannot stand the smell.

here's the story of how i fell,
and made it back alive to tell.

i love the way you weave your words.

Thank you v-v
I know you can see
from your cell to mine
a kindred spirit
brothers of the mind
in different worlds tonight
you are safe
I must fight
not to sink
into the stink
you're a welcome lifeline
in a bad time
up to my neck
in shit and grime
God knows I tire
of wallowing ... flailing ... in this mire
no matter how I weep and shout
grasping at straws ... thrashing about
I try and try
and I can't get out
I don't know anymore
I just can't tell
but from the smell
this has to be hell

From hell you shall climb
Hand over hand, one at a time
Brothers are waiting
To welcome you home.
As you claim proudly
What from you was stolen
Day after day, a little boy screaming
You'll give him care,
you'll believe in his dreaming.

Up out of the mess
You'll slip but you'll recover
Until out of that pit, you'll discover another.

All the ways you have suffered
My caged bird friend
I see your reflection
In the lines on my own hands

They speak stories of wounds
Of families and friends
Lost soldiers, caged fighters
Rising again

As you toil and weep
For all you must change
You see yourself clearly
You're not to blame

Nothing broken here
Only a weary warrior heart
Who keeps climbing and climbing
Found himself back at the start

I don't know where you're going
But I love you the same, bro
Because you're a champion to me
You've always been.

Welcome home.

Love,
Mark

Thank you my friends ...

In times of sorrow
it's a blessing to borrow
kind shoulders ...
and arms that hold my spirit
through the night
until tomorrow
