Darkness Falls - Poem by Corey Bowen

Your sad,
Your mad,
Why am I this way,
Hate myself and all around me,

Why was I born,
into world that corrupt,
Molesters Rapists Pedophiles,

In my room where I lie awake,
Shifting dreams,
Threw the shifting sand,
Threw the darkness you lay,

When darkness falls,
Ill be near,
When blood is spilled,
I can be found,
When children cry,
Ill be there to save them,
When darkness falls
All shall fall,
In city of black,
Where we shall rise all together.

Topic(s) of this poem: alone, darkness, emotions, life and death, night

    We welcome you on this Forum, Corey. Your first poem gives an insight into your world. Poetry is indeed a remedy from boredom but it is much more than that- an experience, an expression and a spiritual bond with the world around. I see in your poem a commendable maturity of thought and a concern for others. I would like to quote a few lines from your poem:
    Why was I born / into world that corrupt / Molesters Rapists Pedophiles /...In city of black /
    Where we shall rise all together.
