Shadow of past sorrows

by sezz   Jul 23, 2008


Believe me when I say that I've seen hell
I know its taste and touch and smell
For the first nine years in its heart I fell
And forever in its shadow is where I'll dwell

You don't know me or the horror I've seen
Its a place I wish for no-one to have been
Some times I think its all just a dream
But I still show the scars & hear the screams

I can't say how bad it really truely was now
I won't give details of torture and how
The things done to me you'd never allow
And yet they happened to me somehow

I know for sure that im not alone
In this pain and sorrow that's now my home
Where the silence and darkness inside have grown
But I wish that your life has happiness shown

Now here I stand before my peers
To see your judgement of my former years
Its a place I stand with eyes in tears
But I'll stand here now and take your jeers

This is not a story of only sorrow
Not just a tale of my shell left hollow
For the days are gone long from tomorrow
I hold my head high and no memories follow

These things so bad are in my past
The scars I have will always last
And the years go by like a shadow cast
My strength and pride have still held fast

Im stronger now than I was back then
Was just a boy but now a grown man
I still remember the memories I can
But will no more turn my back on them

    that stanza was my favorite of all of them. i feel i could relate to it the most, it was like you said just how i felt. you can really make your words come to life, and you write so your reader's can relate, therfore making it easier to understand your work. excellent job. 5/5.

    No i've been there. I know.We live in the same world full of sorrow and dispare. But Once we've climbed the mountain of fate, on the otherside is paradise. We first got to climb through all the rough edges, and cliffs. As we do this we form our body and our mind to be ready.
