Lost in the Black

I was lost from the ripple of disdain
gone to the ditch of black. 
Did I look first or was I searching for my disbarment?
Should I kick the rock to drag my way?

I don't hate myself for fighting.
I huddle in my sorrow.
Whilst in my courage.
I meant to tell myself that I'm quiet in my attempt.

I lift my shield not to protect my fear but my weakness.
I didn't know confusion could hit so hard.

This system of life ruins my expression.
Sinister in my way from the roads of my borders.
Fooled with my running toes whistling through the mud.

I can hear the North but I search for the South.
That scared green light pressing from my shame.
Shhhhh!!!!!! can you hear it?

    You delve into the haunting dark places with great powerful strength. A very moving poem from a place I am unfamiliar with but always want to get a glimpse of. Great ending

    This poem is so well written that I actually found myself straining and listening for something at the end. Talk about pulling the reader into the world you created. Well done

    I think you write a lot on this kind of topic. It is similar to that other poem of yours I love so much (the most recent one posted). GREAT and powerful writing.
