Why does no one hear my cries?
Screaming in the dark,  alone,
surly it’s not all been a lie!
Life is bittersweet, but sometimes
it misses a beat, then we have to feel
the devil’s heat.
Why are the days so short and the nights
so  long?
Where have yesterday’s dreams gone?
Gone in memory’s fog, like fading shadows
 in the night.
Time is a thief, stealing your youth away,
so sing your songs and dance your dance
while you can before the devil starts taking names.
So beware, Oh! be so aware, for all you know,
 the devil may already have your name!
Jackie R. Kays
