Hopelessness

by Weeping Wolf

Hopelessness

So it comes down to this.
Dreams burned into the dust
Joys swept under the rug
Trembling beneath the smile,
Tears trying to hold back tears
Like getting lost on a rainy road
without a home. without a friend.

All my sunny days are gone
All my lonely nights are long
I have friends but none that see
the chains are gone, but am i free?
And not a caring word to be spoken
Not a pair of open arms to be known.

Who will help me make it through another day?
Sweet Jesus, what encouragement could you say?
When I feel i have turned the other cheek
to be hit down again and again, to what gain?
When I let them drag me, pull me down,
to be their lamb to the slaughter, for what pain?

All my sunny days are gone
All my lonely nights are long
Oh I've lived the passion and I've felt the rain
But how long to wait till love surpasses pain?

"Who will help me make it through another day?"

I will help you... maybe not now, in the way you need, but someday...
