Another voice wanting to be heard,
From day one I was taught to listen.
Never waiting for me to catch up.

Takes the problem away for a while.
Empty bottles all around signal their problems are going,
Though it may only be for a while.

Ones that I’d like to push away,
Yet they stay.
Eating into my heart,

Though at times it really felt like it.

Angels Night

Angels falling from the sky,
Watching from the shadows,
Has the sun set on humankind.
Its not the end,
