Silence

There is a part of his life
That he feels he has lost,
He gave up the fight
But what was the cost?

His soul he’s missing
There’s darkness within
He’s just a reflection
Of what used to be him

He is trying too hard
To be something he’s not
Who he used to be
He’s afraid he forgot

He remembers a time
When it used to be clear
Of his purpose in life
But now that all disappeared

This new life he’s living
Is of society’s dreams
With no one around him
To hear the pain that he screams

Now, he sleeps in silence
With no one to hear his cries
He sleeps in silence
Through the torture and the lies

He is too lost to turn back
Too scared to forge ahead
He’s still much alive
Though inside he’s dead

Sins of the past
Cannot be forgotten
His one chance at life
Now tainted rotten

He sleeps in silence
With no one to hear his screams
He sleeps in silence
Through the torture of the dreams

With no one beside him
He’s left all alone
He’s lost in a world
He feels is not his own

As he silently rocks
At the edge of his cell
He’s wasting away
In his fiery Hell

He sleeps in Silence
