In The Shadows

In the shadows,

I am hiding,

Hiding from this cruel, messed up word.

In the shadows,

I am sighing,

Sighing from disappointment in my own kind.

In the shadows,

I am crying,

Crying for the lonely, the damaged, the broken.

In the shadows,

I am hoping,

Hoping things will get better...

Hoping that one day I won't be alone in this cruel world,

No longer,

Never again.
