deep in the stillness

there, priceless fortune is found

without these riches

soul is lost in poverty

through nightfall’s curse of shadows

Listless I Climb

Listless I Climb

These stairs I climb
seem to go on and on
a neverending trudge
to the land of promises
there’s no place to stop
there’s no place to take
a breath and rest to see
if the sun still shines
It seems as though
the promises will never come…
As I continue to climb
with a listless hope
my muscles writhe in anguish
I call for help yet…
silence is the only sound
I keep yearning for a
plateau with a bench
to rest this weary soul and body
but one never comes…
my breath becomes faint
and my eyes grow dim
desperate for light to shine
still, I cannot find the sun
maybe, soon, it will find me
and the promised promises
will finally become a reality
instead of only just a dream
hoped for…
Listless I climb
aching for the promises
to become mine.
