The Cry so Dark

A child sits at the corner 
Laying his hands on the ground 
Staring at the moon so bright 
Nothing in mind, but sorrow 
  
He speaks to the wind, nothing in reply 
He speaks to the tree, with only howling sounds 
He speaks to his mind, just haunting thoughts 
He then speaks to the people, misunderstood 
  
Nowhere, nobody, senseless and meaningless 
That is the life of a boy so complex 
He cried out loud, but no one is interested 
He wants to run, he wants to escape 
  
He is in chains of the dreadful eyes 
Worthless beings who compete for life 
A life so arid; prestige: meaningless in the end 
There is foolishness in the midst of seriousness 
  
Tell something merry and they will ignore 
They imbibe everything he is not 
Expect for his best, but he is nothing 
He fails, he falls down and stumble 
  
His feet will always tell him to stand 
Amidst the rain and cold, he will endeavor 
To seek his undying love long forgotten 
The existence of someone that completes his being 
  
His search will certainly end 
Lest the last drop of tear falls 
Lest the sun lose its light, the stars stop shining 
In the midst of the crowd, he smiles
