A Cry From The Wilderness

Published by

A voice cries from the wilderness
Searching to find a friend
Someone they hope will care about
Their life until its end
I think we all are searching for
Someone to understand
To share all of life’s good and bad
In a dark, hostile land
A lonely soul, lost in the night
Who can no longer hide
The hurt I think we all have felt
Living life terrified
I hear the cry as it rings out
I know its haunting tone
The feeling from behind the voice
Of being all alone
The fear, the hopes, the hurt inside
Too many times to tell
I’ve heard it come from the darkness
I know it all too well
I recognize from deep inside
I know the fear it brings
I start to answer as the cry
Again from pitch black rings
It makes the hair on my neck stand
It cuts me to the bone
How can someone survive out there
With no love to be shown
 A desperate cry from darkness comes
Another soul in pain
It reaches to my very core
As the echoes remain
Does no one hear the cry ring out
Is anybody there
To lend a hand to this poor soul
Does anybody care
Has life became so damn complex
That everyone today
Lives just for Self, has everyone’s
Compassion lost its way
I call out now to find the voice
Yet no answer is heard
An eerie silence fills my ears
My very soul is stirred
What is wrong with humanity
How can we let this be
I hear the cry and realize…
It comes from…within…me
