Shadows of the battles we fight,

It’s memories keeping us up at night,

The sky now is never bright.


Blame in folded knots,

Hammering our hearts like nuts and bolts.


Fear of expression

Our souls dying with depression


Courage blown like an autumn leaf,

Happiness fading like our once vast coral reef.


We have forgotten to care

All we do is nod and stare


We are like dying roots of the big tree

We are trapped in our own battles and can never be free


It has been a long while

Since we last saw a real smile


We lose seconds of reality

Our actions are now done silently


If we could all go back to our heart

We can make another beautiful start.


We are but oblivious things

We’ve lost the title of human beings.
