Can Something Good Happen, Please?!

Updated on June 24, 2013
I’ve been sitting in the dark so long
I’ve been sitting in the dark so long
I live to sleep
I live to sleep
And wait until the light once more . . .
And wait until the light once more . . .

I have been sitting in the dark so long.

Can something good happen please?!

I’m tired of every day bringing me to my knees.

I try to smile through my tears and not give in to the fear.

I want to SCREAM!

But who will hear; who would care?

So, I remain silent, on the outside, while an angry war rages in my brain, my heart, and my soul.

Every day my spirit tires more.

I live to sleep – then wake again to fight, until I can once again find that quiet place where all is well, all is right.

And wait until the light once more shines down to warm this weary heart.

      Glad to have you stop by and give your observations billy. I am both humbled and inspired to have any part of my work compared to such greats as Thoreau.

      Thank you my new friend.

      Living lives of quiet desperation? I was reminded of Thoreau as I read this lovely poem. I think you spoke for quite a few people in the modern world with this one....longing for more...hoping that there really is more....and somehow not giving up the fight.

      It's nice to know you....carry on the good fight my new friend.

      Yes writinglover, I have always been one to look at the glass as half full, even in the darkest of times. Thank you for the vote up.

      I like how there's some hope at the end. While things may seem dark, there's always light at the end. Voted it up!
