Soul's Struggle

Flightless stuck and suffering
My soul withers closed
Spirit is lost and broken
Forgotten dreams crumbled

Fierce agony of conflict
Broken beliefs and actions
Opressing dark shadows
Endless tearless weeping

There still faintly burns
A precious part of
Past grief filled glory
Passion once meaningful

This piece of me is
Searching for something
Something to heal with
Shine brightly once again
Reaching for upwards
Wholeness pulsating vibrant

But pain of the present
Leaves me unsure
Is the flickering flame
A herald of hope,
Or is it the very walls
Of my lonely prison?
