Despair

Darkness...

Yes...darker than a starless night...

Where there is no moon in the sky and it's silent...

Despair comes out and does what it feels is right...

Hope can't come and interfere with our darkest night...

And if they try, despair will win the fight...

And hope will never see the light...

Throughout the lands they'll feel our pain...

And they will all cower in fear and shame...

And let the tempest of our tears come as rain...

And let darkness and despair cover the world in pain and sorrow...

The process repeats every day after tomorrow...

Until every person's heart is filled with despair and sorrow...

That is despair. That is life.

That is the life of living in despair and darkness.

Sarah Luongo: I'm a big fan of the format of the book- the concept of incorporating poems and within the story and sectioning off periods of the story with each poem. It made it easier to read, and made the unimaginable easier to comprehend. What some people may skip over may be the most important part in this...

Emmelya Vandevoorde: I love this story ... heart warming and touching ...The end wasnt what i expected but life never is ...

Sir Nilo: Beautiful words! Remarkable. I loved it

Fabia Scali-Warner: Wow. This works reminds me of Allen Ginsberg, and at times even Prevert. The arching storyline is interesting, but I loved the care given to every verse. What a gem!
