Awakenings

A cast-away soul in his solitary moment,

Floating into a never-ending circle of uncertainty

In denial of all things hitting him in the eye

Or could it be that he just can’t dare to face dire reality?

A deep-seated fear sets in rooted from the world’s cruelty.

 

Shielding himself from dark forces,

But wake-up calls are beyond his control

He wants to awaken from this abstract dream

Mysterious vibrations preventing him to even scream

Delusions overwhelming him in every heart beat.

 

A spectrum of enveloped ideas only his mind can conceive,

Out of this swirling darkness he awakened from being naïve

Bid adieu to his grueling nightmare

Awaiting for the dawning of a new day

To see the light welcoming him again.
