Questions in shadow

entry picture

Too many broken promises

Too many doors block the truth

My life is a worn out recipe

of something that never was cooked


Feelings that often gave chase

on the beautiful face of a child

are now deeply buried and hidden

neath the dust and the cobwebs of age


Of what I was once is now missing

lost in a multitude of lies

with mislaid sanity gazing

into empty eyes of dread


Insecurity feels like a shadow

following every small step

Am I really the face that confronts me

in any reflection I catch


Who is it behind that dense smokescreen

the one I prepare and display

Can I ever be what dreams envisage,

or be damned as another lost soul.


Life is a collection of questions

so many to doubt or to fear

Hope is my only salvation

Peace my only true friend


When will I reach my utopia?

Sooner then later,

or never?
