Poetry By: iola ried

However long the night, the dawn will break...

What do you do?

Your failure's is all you see

The night sinks in to your fragile bones

You've died before you've even breathed


Blood runs dry deep inside

There's nothing left to keep you alive

Yet a smile is fastened to your face

Truths are hidden, you live by lies


Pain amplifies harsher and stronger

Love becomes feeble and weak

Demons haunt your lonely nights

Your guardian angel can no longer fight


The fire of love dies in ache

Leaving in its wake ashes of hate

Embers of pain freeze your core

And do nothing to melt the ice in your soul


With labored breath's you breathe on

In dying hope of a dawn to come

Lying in a dark hollow, six feet deep

Hoping this breath is your last to keep


What do you do?

Rise up, leave your failures behind

Let the past go; your heart will beat again inside

Seek the light, its never too far away


Even the darkest nights have stars that shine

Caterpillars eventually turn to butterflies

One candle is all you need

It'll get you through to daylight


A smile will brighten those empty eyes

You'll learn to love this brief life

For you have found one reason to live

Against those many more to die tonight
