A Secret Not Shared

Living in an endless nightmare Where the flowers never bloom Where the sun doesn't shine And the river's never flow As life changes from day to day And their eyes and grins are all we find Not caring about our destiny or our fate Why do we feel the way we do To learn, to explore, to understand the world Is it right to feel so blue To feel like you have no purpose in life To feel like you've been violated inside-out Dreaming of far off places to where the birds fly free And all our greatest dreams become more than real As the blue bird shed's it's happiness To all of us who are so blind Yet what is happiness to those who mourn Or those who weep over what's been done Each so different, yet each the same Created equal for a purpose, to love one another The fight between life and death is hard to see But the answer is not ours to hold We must each find our path's in life Where we each make mistakes that change our ways As the rain pours down to bring new life A single breath is but a whisper And a shallow heartbeat that is so clear Our minds dance, dance in the dead of night While the monster so true gets three to five The innocence of a young girl is so blind Where from day in and day out she is left with life No remorse for this lonesome dove while she flies overhead Like the Angel she is she wishes it to end For them to help, yet leave her alone For them to see how hurt she feels Like being left alone by the stump of a tree As an Angel may spread it's wings To reveal its masked identity We are lost in our words from our hearts Like the sun that shines so bright Like the secrets of an innocent soul All is lost in the abyss of nothingness Where fire reins free as if like a bird But with no feeling like the devil himself As a lost soul may find a way to far beyond It carries with it a message of hope, peace and love For until next time we shall have to wait For the secret to life, death and beyond even that.

There is a deep sadness in this well written piece Shannon. It's very moving to be honest, and it feels so close to home. Thank you for sharing....:)
