Dark Side Inside
As civilians pass him by,
he only looks down.
In the dark corner of the street,
all he has is nothing but himself.
The shadows are his haven from the suffering that chases.
He hides in them from the problems he faces.
Silence surrounds him on the outside,
but he hears the screeching of metal on the inside.
It is imprisoned inside of him,
waiting to be released once more.
All his bottled anger and stress,
is what created the darkness inside.
He is not proud of what he has done.
Memories are what he wants gone.
His mind begins to collapse,
as rain starts to come down.
He knows he must hold in the pain
to keep him from going insane
Feeling insecure and defenseless,
he drops to his knees helpless.
He puts his hands together.
Faith is something that has not left him.
He then closes his eyes and looks down,
as shadows pass him by.
