From the depths of my soul comes the sounds of torment and ridicule.
I am defiant they say, a absolute worthless case.
At the blows of hatred and constant insults, I dare not defend myself
from the shadow that watches me constantly.... I only fear the worst.
shall I be the first to die, or be share an internal thirst.
I dare you to scream he says, know-one will hear your cries,
my tears find me silent, and sadness overcome my eyes.
Through the numerous moons, I only pray for redemption,
while my muffle screams reside in hell.

Unbelievably visual. I feel your emotion through your choice of words and flow.

Grito commented on SCREAM


Looking up from the bottom of a deep well can be overwhelming. There are so many ways to go, so much pressure to conform, to realize oneself. But, with God's grace, there is redemption and strength.
