Poem Commentary

well i wrote this based on my life...and as i was looking around at everything.....you be the judge of that....enjoy

That Time

I walk outside

and see nothing but sadness, darkness

The world is painted in only one color

BLACK

People stop and stare, mesmerized by my darkness

At that time that was the only life I had

Filled of nothing but sadness and sad endings.

At that time I heard the faintest cry

of pain and sorrow.

Lost and deserted my story starts

then it ends just as it started years ago.

I started to see the meaning of my life

but then it went down a lonely road of

sorrow, never to return again.

Mr. Crowley watches over me as I walk out into the night

to do what I did best

Write my heart out.

At that time my Father took me to a parade

to see a marching band and said when I grow up

I am to be the savior of the broken, the beaten, and the lost.

But this time shows a difference.

Now I see only

Light...

Your description of the past is very sobering. Sometimes that dark place is soooo ......dark. I am so glad you found your inner light. "Where there is light there can be no darkness." Those are someone else's words. I do not know where I know them from, but I never heard anything truer. Excellent.

Outstanding! the poem is very well written and you create a truly moving poem. a 10 from me

Poetry is not the expression of personality but an escape from personality.
