Nowhere To Run Poem by Frank (Black) Blacharczyk

Nowhere To Run



God wake me up even though my soul sleeps in fear
I have seen the sun set let me see the sun rise
he held out hope he had no choice
a colourful flower growing in a black and white war
I know a man who prayed for peace
saw an empty cross an empty tomb
an empty world emptied of its soul
spinning out of control knocking on heaven's door
I know a man who prayed for peace
and words like a thousand songs played at once
the sound put him down he found nowhere to run
I know a man who prayed for peace
and he saw the rich getting richer
and the poor complaining but nothing changes
the same stays the same, the poor in spirit complaining
nothing changes

I know a man who prayed for peace
couldn't see it couldn't feel it couldn't hear it
but a dream nobody could take away
until this man could pray no more
