Author: Dilvorn


have you ever felt like you don't have a chance
like the worlds moving on
and it's killing your dance

have you wondered what comes
when you die and move on
does it make you feel dumb

in times of hatred and fear
there's things that you need
but just can't bring them near

what makes us think we're special
that someone might care
when we're out there alone
and nobody's there

to walk on this path,
and to know it will end
but not to know where
or where to begin

freedom is fighting
but fighting is null
life is so fleeting
but they say I'm so dull

I can't be the one
to walk out and be shallow
I hate to be surface
but hate also to wallow

in the depths of my mind
in the caves of my soul
I find it's so hard
the litter's been culled

thrown into the cold
to weather the storm
pride I've survived
and never been the norm

but complacent as I am
my mind keeps on stirring
and I know in my heart
my fleeing keeps me whirring

a stable home
to call my own
a friend of mine
that can't be shown

the fight that occurs
from the left to the right
it always comes down to one
that one being fright.

but there's no way to change
what's been beat in so long
if you can't make that leap
from being so wrong

there's a power that you know
that tells you so true
that there's others out there
that feel just as you

but it's finding the kindred
with those you can share
those feelings of hatred
that've left you so scared

and it's not that I have
some dower old face
somewhere inside there
is a saving grace

every day gets harder
than the one before that
when I walked out and wondered
what am I looking up at

I want it to be
that I've shunned out the evil
that my innards are crying
my soul a flying eagle

it's not an oh pity me story
but everyone takes it as that
it's just that I'm lost
and can't find my way back

but I'm learning you see
on this path that I've taken
and in time and each day
it's helping me to awaken

I'll walk in the light
of knowing what's right
everything will take flight
for it's a righteous fight
