Symphony of Antipathy on a Cold, Starry Night

’Neath a cold, starry sky,sits my mind at unrest.
Echoes of her voice arouse stirrings in my chest.
I look towards the heavens for answers untold
Yet what I seek to find, even they cannot hold.

I listen to the dogs as they howl towards the sky
No one to hear them, No one but I.
As the dogs, I am restless, In need of a break.
As the dogs I’m held captive,In need of escape.
Yet my heart, like the night, Turns bitter and cold.
For I know what these creatures will never be told.

The pain I am feeling cannot be expressed
By vocalizations released from my chest.
For just as the dogs’ cry is surely in vain.
So is the cry of a lone man, conveying his pain.
For though they’re surrounded for miles around,
The slumbering ears cannot hear a sound.
So, though I be surrounded by friends held dear,
My cry is futile and worthless to their ears.

Oh night, so cruel! Oh night, so cold!
Is there any relief from your icy hold?

Then as I look upon the water and I gaze into the sky.
I sense a deeper presence
In this seemingly lonely night.
This world I reside in has no answer to give me.
I can search my whole life and never find peace.
But I hear through the night a wicked awesome call.
That eases my mind and leaves me in awe.
He takes my worries, my fears, and my pain.
He gives me the courage to walk His way.

As I listen to His voice, I’m slowly noticing
That the night that surrounded me
Has changed into morning
Now, the dogs still howl and the stars still glow.
But I now understand that I was never alone.

Good Morning!

Artist's Description

I wrote this my senior year in high school. I wrote half of it at night, and the other half the next morning, I think it’s kinda obvious where I stopped and started again.
