From The Madness

From the madness
I saw myself
Deep in darkness
Trying to escape
Out of blackness
Looking for the light

Running from weakness
Only into empty thought
Lost in the bleakness
Which I had made
Hating this deep mess
I find myself in

There is nothing less
But still nothing more
On my knees to confess
All is now long gone
Leaving behind stress
Sanity gone away

Rotting Carnations

She sits there alone
Head in her hands
Crying about the past
Of the hurt inside
She feels so alone

He is miles away
Forever being drunk
Lost in a bottle
Never forgiving himself
For what he had done

But there on the window
Long forgotten and neglected
Is a reminder of their love
But now faded and died
A vase of rotting carnations

That's Something New

Another war being fought
That's nothing new

More hatred being taught
That's nothing new

Racist attacks again
That's nothing new

Elderly man mugged again
That's nothing new

Woman raped today
That's nothing new

Children beaten, gone astray
That's nothing new

Someone smiled and said "Good morning"
That's something new

There is a new love this new morning
That's something new
