Whispers For Children - Poem by Luis Lazcano

How sad is it when it all burns?
When regretting means nothing
And old memories become tragic gray
Maybe this change, lost meaning in you
Unspoken thoughts come across your demise
But you always knew how to carry a burden.

Frankly, how could you feel safe?
If a mistake is reborn
Called upon you, but spreading in faces
Maybe being broken is just another lost step
Turning into crying shivering nights
Because this is what it takes.

You bring names to the lost
Scared by most of this, to take a part of you
Always so absent in rest and lost in bitter memories
I seek for those...

To cherish the way you have it all
But nothing seems real
It keeps your resemblance with others
But who knows your name?
Who seeks your faith?

Always so lost,
Always a ghost with boundaries
Wishing to keep these memories together
Crying for leaving
Leaving for rest
Among this empty forest
A used, shallow tree.

Coming across those faces
Reminds you of sleepless nights
When you had a plan, never a chance
When found in peace, dreams rotten
When escaping from nightmares, back to these.

He had something to say,
but his voice has wasted
without forgiving thoughts
lost in these...

So vulnerable, but not yet broken
Like to think there was a resemblance
Today he is a lost regret
In a moment for these ambitious dreams
To show the world
To say a word...
