When I Tried To Feel

May 6, 2008
By Keen Malasarte, Brooklyn, NY

In the silent
lonely nights,
I slept ,
when i have to rest.
but not for long,
I was disturbed,
by blazing noises.
Pitiful shrieks
of voices.
It was yet,
fearful for me.
for no creature
can make it happy.

I awoke,
dreary w/ tears.
For,
I was petrified,
w/ great
enormous fear.
I lit up the candle
for i should
cry not.
and leave my thoughts,
w/ strength imdeed.

i wondered curiosly,
for what has come
and now i felt,
what it has become.

For all those years,
w/ painful memories,
of LOVE, SADNESS, and FEAR.
It made me believe,
of what Feelings can be.

I long to see
of what i've done.
for what i learned,
is now
a gift to me.
and i'm filled w/ hope,
to see what i can be.
