Darkness - Poem by Derrick Gwynn

I can see the people around me
and how they believe
there life will be
happy and free

then the darkness is set free
and starts to hang around
then your fear come to life in the night
and your fright is fueled by your
regrets of your life
its like you have just become
in need of a spark of light


all of your hope
has become like a piece of stone
or a broken bone
like it has just been thrown

you are left to cry and wait
for your life to turn
so you wont have to always be hurt
by the of sorrow and fright

that has lurked
its way right into your life.
