When I was a boy, I would always hear scary things in the news and my mother would say to me, "Always look for the helpers. Everywhere you look you will always find people helping." - Fred Rogers


What if the snow fell into the skies?
No need for whats and hows and whys.
What if the light takes in the darkness.
Round and round, the old, worn lies.
Like the records with the scratches.
Light the dark ages with the matches.

How can't you see perfection in your
weary soul?
Broken ladders and clenched fists cover
the mind.
You look and look, more rage is all you find.
I want to try to be that supporting pillar.
Helping the butterflies sprout their wings.
Connecting the minds and hearts of the
broken glass.

Come hither to the moon and the stars,
so wondrous.
Stare at the sky until you know you're okay.
Safe under the protection of the swaying trees.
Anger and anguish run through your veins.
The mirrors lie and illusion reigns.

How can't you see perfection in your
weary soul?
Broken ladders and clenched fists cover
the mind.
You look and look, more rage is all you find.
I want to try to be that supporting pillar.
Helping the butterflies sprout their wings.
Connecting the minds and hearts of the
broken glass.

Carry on through this life, poor, tired soul.
Know that you are never truly alone.
People will always be here for you and
for me.
All of this pain will be just a memory.
Nobody on this earth wants to see you go.
I just want to make sure you know.
Don't ever give up on this life.
This world needs you, so just put down
that knife.
People love you, people need you.
You'll make it through the storm.

I thank you for your support, but please. Call me Shade. There is no purpose for the "@." Do you think that I won't be able to tell that your talking about me without the "@?" So, please. Call me Shade. Thank you.

Surround yourself with the dreamers and the doers, the believers and the thinkers, but most of all, surround yourself with those who see greatness within you, even when you don't see it yourself.

DO NOT BE AFRAID is written in the Bible 365 times.T.

Congrats Umbrella! I love your poem..

Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, so long as one remembers to turn on the light.

I agree with Rae. This was amazing to me and I hope that some day I could write something as good as this. I also think you (also like rae said) WILL be a professional writer someday. Don't stop writing!

Always have a book at hand, in the parlor, on the table, for the family; a book of condensed thought and striking anecdote, of sound maxims and truthful apothegms. It will impress on your own mind a thousand valuable suggestions, and teach your children a thousand lessons of truth and duty. Such a book is a casket of jewels for your housebold. - Tryon Edwards

..wow....awesome one...simply love it.!!
