You Are Not Alone

By EricAMBM All Rights Reserved ©

Poetry

Chapter 1


You are not alone

When the bomb blasts echo in the night

And guns fire in the streets

You are not alone

When the pain clouds your mind

And good men fall to the ground

You are not alone

When hatred makes its mark

And evil comes to bear

We are with you

We are with you in the night

We are with you in the streets

We are with you in the stadiums

In the seats filled with blood

We are with you in the countries

In nations far and wide

From across oceans

Across mountains

And miles of uncharted ground

If our backs our broken, if our hearts are heavy

If the way is lined with knives

We will come

We will come in the cold of the winter

Across any obstacles

And in the darkness of the night

Know the sun only ever sets

So that it may rise again

So we will stand beside you

Until the dawn is shining down

The chains will be broken

The wounds will be healed

And hatred will meet its end

The world is standing with you

Shouting high and loud

That evil will never triumph

When good men stand their ground

The author has managed to make me visualize the story like a movie. The two time frames of past and present are also so beautifu...

Makayla Danielle Waits: Just finished one of the most amazing books I have ever read. I connected to it in a way I can't quite put to words. It was as if this person was speaking to me, and me only. Telling me her stories and struggles and how this person handled them and how they worked or how they kept trying; but all...

Laraine Smith: My only suggestion for you is to bookmark www.grammarcheck.net. As an American nursing home resident, I can only dream of traveling to Europe! I was so lucky to find this story! This is a sweet one!

Laraine Smith: My only suggestion on the grammar is to use www.grammarcheck.net. I have it bookmarked on Google Chrome. I see myself in the determination in this beautiful story! I have Cerebral Palsy, and I have dreams that I have been working hard for, too! The humor made me laugh!

Laraine Smith: In addition to being humorous, this story is visual! This is also a beautiful story. Keep up the great work! :)

CalvinPeat: This is a great concept, and you've done a largely excellent job of capturing the voice of Mal.You convey Mal's inner struggle well. Perhaps, though, you could reflect the hope in verses 13-17 of Psalm 90 a bit more. A suggestion: in the current version, Mal seems to be losing hope in the idea of...
