Today I sit and ask who’d care? For me and friends This life we share The lonely path on which we’ve trod Our meeting others Good or odd Our loving laughter, days of tears The fighting forward With our fears To wake amidst the morning war Reflections of The night before We try to focus through the smog Our mind now trapped Inside its fog Each day a battle just to live Without a focus The nowt to give Our smile or message we’re ok Protecting us It’s just our way Our overwhelming burdening A sense of guilt For suffering For we the silent, stoic folk Are empath people Sadly broke So please give us a little air Some time to think To find our flair For you are always on our mind Sharing smiles With our kind Let’s not have judgement or disdain For all of us Have inner pain It’s time we listened, shared a smile Thoughts of others Every while For all of us have needs of hope Let’s all reach out To help can’t cope
The darkened days preventing sight Where all I see is hate fuelled smite Where all I hear are vacuumed cries Demands and blame inside those lies As love and kindness fade away Our human hate, now earths decay Where envy hides inside the pill You swallowed it to stop your ill As all we had is all we’ve lost Our love of hate, no thought of cost Our sense of care now long forgot As selfish thoughts now drive our rot So, what of me and where am I? Bemused, confused, no wonder why!
We passed on the bridge That long lost day in spring You smiled a smile that captured me That moment, when time stood still Where sound became silent The breeze no longer there It felt just like a photograph One where I could look around Although Id no idea for how long But I stood and stared At that wonderfully vibrant smile Before turning to walk away Hoping that I might see you one more time As I took those first few steps The breeze returned The sound of children and dogs The smells of fresh mown grasses I turned to look that one last time
