All At Once

Rating: 2.9

All at once I am saddened,
To know I can do nothing,
To stop that which I cannot control.
Knowing it is not right,
Burdens my softened soul.

All at once I am tearful,
To know that a part of life must end,
Without any regret.
It is taken quickly in shadow,
But the heart shan't ever forget.

All at once I am reminded,
Of all I promised to uphold-
Haunting memories of the yesterday,
Plague my tortured heart,
Which hides feelings never to depart.

All at once I am powerless,
To say what lies in my heart-
Voices inside wish to speak,
To cry out in justice,
But the spirit is far too weak.

All at once I am angered,
To see others turn away,
From something so sacred as life;
In trembling indifference,
They chose to sacrifice.

All at once I am accepting,
For there is little which I may do,
To stop this endless pain.
I long to make a difference,
But my wishes die in vain.
