Chaos in to Order

Unrequited truths and undetermined lies
With undecided thoughts we’re making up our minds
Answers not approved, paving our lives
This lack of looking in has taken what’s inside

In to dark we come, forever to revolve
Its gravity will tear through all we had absolved
In to night we fall, never to evolve
Repeating our pain – forever unresolved

Everything we seek is nothing we will find
The weight of our pain becoming our guide
The nothingness that feeds on every loving light
This emptiness will prey on those that bring insight

Unrequited love and undetermined hearts
The uninvited ghost refusing to depart
Unintended words laying out a chart
Outwards we will fade; again we must restart

On to knees we climb, taking down our wall
Severing the thought from every single fall
In honesty we shed the part that stood too tall
To know why we should fight is to remember why we crawl

Insanity repeats, breaking our pride
The darkest truths bring light to blinded eyes
Chaos bearing fruit from horror we denied
Inwardly we find the brightest sun outside

    Very well done Ian, I especially like the line "the darkest truths bring light to blinded eyes" ~ superb! Just one thing, NOT being critical but "in to" should be "into". Peace.
