World of shadows.

Updated on October 21, 2011

Anguished over the world
tired of fumbling his pen and paper
he shouted "I am anguished over the world
in which I lived".

"I condemned the tree of knowledge"
unforntutely, he hid his pain deep within
Over "The Anguished World of Shadows"
Everything matters to him
when it come to
composing hymns of freedom
Freedom to live,
Freedom to write
Freedom to be happy
Freedom not to abided by others will

His bloodshot eyes impaired his vision
never been in bondage
Until he took a sip of the devil's soup
Injustice is an evil in itself
both the dipper and the abider
They kidnapped his soul!

He must be free from the claws of the moonshine
Freedom must come soon
Rearmed again my poet friend

Drunk and disorderly always in custody

his friend and his family all fed up with him

Moonshine have ruin his life

Now he lost his wife.

      Dear Darknlovely3436,

      Thanks for taking the time to comment on my hubpages. Writing is a very excellent way of releasing stress from the minds/souls. Sometimes the mind spent too much time dwelling in the past that it often missed out current events.

      The past

      frequently visits

      swimming in murky waters

      The present

      painted with rainbows

      carpe diem!

      A future

      not yet seen

      is yet to come

      Stay happy ;)

      ...well I love drinking and hell raising songs but then again I love the old style country music - heard of David Allan Coe, Townes Van Zandt or Billie Joe Shaver.

      One thing very obvious here - your words are not in the shadows - they are in the limelight - and they're looking really mighty fine. lake erie time ontario canada 4:50pm

      You hit this one out of the park. Devil's soup it is. It ruins a life and it showed in your poetry. Perfect example.

      How sad, but true. Alcohol kills more people than any other drug, yet it's legal! I just wrote a new poem about someone who leaves a drunken party to go home. Read it when you can. I'll never write poetry as well as you, but you do inspire me. Regards, Mary
