William Hammond William Hammond Male, 36, United States (6/14/2012 1:21:00 PM)

we watch hopes die as time goes on..
we hurt hopelessly as we sadly mourn..
thoughts of the end softly lurk..
we watch pain grow with its hateful smirk..
the chains of solitude tightly grasp..
our hearts die with our every aching gasp..
trapped in our own minds, no wish for freedom..
the grief grows strong with all four seasons..
small yearns for love struggle through stains..
but hatred takes over and more are slain..
lies become us, we live false dreams..
the silence echoes with every voicless scream..
our wishes crumble, then fade to black..
life is over, my own soul has turned his back..
we rest in peace and cry thoughtless tears..
because its not death were scared of, its life we fear..

    That was an excellence poem, beautifully composed couplet, the message of it flowed through my mind like a stream of water down a river.
