The Darkness and Light


Shy, sad, lad,
hears lies,
sighs, cries,
wipes eyes,
tries to see whys.
But only knows game,
feels pain, shame; lame,
going insane.
Hopes someone comes
with help to heal bruised
boy, toy,
that he never had, but was.
Is help and change
there from those who
care?
Wants to get away from his
lair, scare;
grabs
hair.
Hate him, hate me.
Must confide in someone who'll
hide, me from me, for now.
Won't come out until it's safe.
Help me, help you
we must survive
stay alive, thrive, jive.
Nothing matters now
but care of me,
therapy.
have to be there,
for you, and me.

Dave,

No words seem adiquate. This speaks to me as well. The 11-year-old I was felt like this. The adult male still does, except I try to rationalize it.

You will find that peace, I know it. We all will.

Peace and love (and thanks for something to think about... \:\) )

Scot

David,

Wow, it's been a while coming but worth the wait. I'm glad you shared this.

I see the jumbled feelings, tripping over one another in the rush to be heard. I've seen that happen to me so often.

I'm glad that it leads up to the Light, too. The Darkness was real, but it was. The Light is.
