I Dareā€¦ To Fallow

Dreams gone never ending

Tired 'n sick of pretending,

Death and hate can co-exist

With love without remiss

Do you still dare to follow?

Darkness pain never ending

Warning bells ceased ringing,

Collapsing walls of safety

'round the town of apathy

Do you still dare to follow?

Heart wrenching crying

Whole world is dying,

Tears trying to flow

But only dust floats below

Do you still dare to follow?

Misery compounding

Hope and faith are drowning

No light left

Mercy is deaf

Do you still dare to follow?

Take one step

Just keep walking

People of God

Never stopping

Do you still dare to follow?

Author Note: In the last stanza, I mean for the words "People of God/Never stopping" not to be cold but to be a call to fellow Christians not to give up during the hard times of life. Also, I wrote this after coming "under attack" by some so-called fellow Christians while going through a rough patch in life, hence the dark tone.
