Existence, scene after scene, characteristic of life’s
environment, and promises that reveal nothing,
the past descends like rain from the sky, washing
away all dreams. Phantoms of youth chanting
within the soul, paths blocked; evil has spread
across the landscape of a lifetime. Loneliness
limits love and happiness; boundaries slow
down the process of moving into the future
shrouded with abundant solitude from where
there is no escape. Rethink the future!
Lost Little Girl…
I do not know if you are alive or dead.
I see your face your voice never
The sun does not rise in the morning, nor
fade into the west without a thought of you.
I mourn, nights are sleepless and morning
eyes fill with fire.
No one more cherished, more loved, my
heart bears scars of torture. Where are you
my lost little girl?
