Without Understanding


Control in manner
sadness in spirit
shadows follow
prisoner chained
till you understand.

Mask covers deceit
darkness hides away
the truth, turning off
hope intent, till you

Casting stones, hitting
home, sadness deepens
within the heart alone
till growth begins.

Content concealed
waves rage in anger
upon an island of
disbelief, holding
back destiny by those
who will not try.

Peace lingers, out
of reach, fear soars
high among dreams
untouched, till you

No beginning, no end
hearts grow uneasy
with every passing day
till life drained, begins
a new.

Truth hidden among
snow cap peaks, touching
places never seen, alone
sad, without knowledge
to understand.

Another time, another
place where dreamers
live among fairies,elf's
unknown by those who
travel alone, lashing
out without faith to

Fear like shadows
follow, no explanation
to doubts, living deep
within the raging soul.

Touching promises
breaking dreams with
restless minds, not
believing God's holy
word, just their own
thoughts, alone, forsaken
drowning in self-rage
without a mind to

Just living life, taking it
don't question, don't ask,
be aware what you see
don't deceive yourself
put others first, be giving
be compassionate, but
most important, be true
to yourself, in actions
words, and deeds..

(Doing this, your tree of life
will forever bloom)
