I scream

  • I wrote this about a friend who is in a lot of pain. I saw these clouds today and thought of how the darker translucent clouds were like the pain being caused and the brighter pink clouds were those of the friends lifting away the pain. I scream. I scream. I scream. You do not hear me. I whisper. I whisper. I whisper. You do not hear me. We are the same, yet not alike. Once we loved each other.

To lift you up to the clouds. What? I no not of what you offer. My mind is a haze of pain and disappointment. I can not hear you. I am done with the pain. Stand up Warrior. Stand up now! You are not done. But just begun. Pick up your mighty staff. Step up to us. We are here for you. We will lift you up. You must take the first step into the light. Stand up Warrior. Stand up now! You are not alone. There is much to be done. There is work to do. Pick up your mighty staff. Look up. See the light. We are here for you. But you must be here for yourself. I scream. I scream. I scream. And someone heard....
