Coup De' Grace

Rookie (july 4th 1995 / USA)

The Shadows

The shadows creep around me
As I lay awake
I hear their voices call my name
Are they just fake?
I feel an eerie presence
almost like a ghost
yet I feel as if I’m alone
alone in a world of passing shadows
alone in a world where there is only hate and rejection
alone in a world where we are taught to hate
alone in a world where everyone is the same
alone in a world that doesn’t care
alone in a world where I’m only a freak
alone in a world where I’m just a girl
a girl who never loves and never hates
a girl who thinks even the simplist things are fake

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
