In the Shadows


one full of anger

one full of hope


seeking absolution

seeking vengeance

sadness lives in our lives

in the shadow of happiness

pain cuts deep

to the horrors we keep

embracing joy

as pain continues to hide

in the shadows
I speak in whispers

I’m not
what I was
an empty soul
facing tomorrow

I am the promise

of today’s hope

silence is roaring

can you hear it


in the stillness

  1. You have a way with words! To me, this write says that we are a mixture of emotions, fears, joys; it makes us what we are. But knowing the bad helps us reach out for the good and there is always hope for the future. Amazing picture too.
