SADNESS

I leave this place at break of day
For a future that is bleak
No given predirection
Or familiar face to meet

I see only emptiness before me
And loneliness behind
An ache that beats within my breast
And confusion in my mind

No shackles tied about me
No bonds of steel or rope
A frame thats weak and weary
With only pockets full of hope

For life is just a stepping stone
A passage way in time
To a place of dreams and harmony
Where the sun forever shines.

Perhaps we are all becoming so focussed in our self-interest that at times we see nothing except SADNESS.

hi penfold... thanks for leaving words... i appreciate it very much... xx

your poem:
this makes me see a different perspective on life... what i understand of this is that youre saying there is a lot of hurt, pain etc in this life but the good as well, all serving a purpose for when this stage of life is over... life as we know it isnt what we think... after death, our souls will have gone through the preparatory period and will be ready for when the door to where the sun shines all of the time opens up (like a reference to heaven) ... i like this, gave a nice feeling in the end... like something better does await us and lets not give up... :) thanks for sharing :f

later... xx

True, as Amon says, this is about hope....don't we all need that...today more than other days...but oh well....thanks for sharing, this lets me think about the future...
