A Cry for Hope
I hear the screams. I hear the cries.
I cover my ears, but it's in my mind.
I turn away. I avert my eyes.
Still I hear the heart-broken cries.
I turn my gaze. But all to see is all in pain.
The sky is a canvas with streaks painted red, a red as deep as blood.
Like a rose after full bloom, with the haunting death of a full moon.
There's no where to run, there's nowhere to hide.
There's nothing to seek, nothing to find.
My mind was set; no turning back.
But now all I know is this regret.
I closed my eyes but now I'm blind.
I heard the screams, I heard the cries. I covered my ears, I averted my eyes.
But there's no where to run, there's no where to hide.
Now and forever, it's seared in my mind.
