Consumed by Shadows

Written by: Tracie Edwards

Are we truly masters of our own destiny Or are we lost, left slipping on the edge of fate Bloody and bruised knuckles just trying for dear life to hang on Constantly we deny our own existence Letting the past consume us, as we dwell on hate Love all but gone from this world Misery left in its wake Foiled, manipulated and confused Mindless fools left paused as life carries on A puppet draped with tangled strings Doing what's expected not what we want So many dreams left splintered as fragments of life pass us by Forever clouded, lost in the smoke from bridges we have burnt Do we turn a blind eye as the world screams for help Muffled by societies pillow Do we turn away..ignorant and wait till its left laying limp Lifeless on the floor Our world no more..
