Who are we

shadows of the past 
visions in the dark 
memories that didnt last 
echoes of the heart 

who are we?

faces with no eyes 
emotions without love 
humans full of pride 
vessels without a dove 

who are we?

a forrest without the sun 
an ocean without the water 
a mother without her son 
a father without his daughter 

who are we?

are we the whispers in the wind 
or a scream in the desert 
are we the feeling when we win 
or the pain when we get hurt 

who are we?

pages without the pen
a year without a summer 
an egg without the hen 
a drum without the drummer 

who are we?

are we the void in an open plain 
are we the lonliness in limbo
am i the thunder in an open range 
or  taps of rain on a window 

who are we?

are we the lonesome dove 
or are we the chosen sparrow 
is it me youre thinking of 
or are we the bow without the arrow 

who are we?

    Sometimes life brings ambiguity. It'll take us high and proud with smile before it throws us down facing the plain ground. Nicely written, John. :)
