Dark Room


My life is like a dark room,
For I do not see the light,
My pupils are wide though the light is on,
I feel alone almost always,
I feel alone even when others are near,
Only so often do I feel free of the darkness,
But who will save me when I am stuck in the dark room?
Who will be my savior?
Who will I show gratitude for as long as I may live?
I am still not sure if that person truly exists.

My life is like a dark room,
Thus I cannot find the lock,
I am held captive in the darkness,
Time does not excist for me,
It feels like I am falling,
falling in a bliss,
Whom will catch me when it feels like I am lost forever?
Who has the key to the lock?
Is it thou?
Arst thy my savior?
Who ever it is,
Rescue me, if you please.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
