Shadow Land

I have felt the weight of rage
Pin me to the ground.
The roaring wind of my silent scream,
I choke it down.

     And a still, small voice
     Says, “I will be your guide
     Through this shadow land….”

I have seen my brother fall,
I watched him bleed.
In the darkness of pain
I could only weep.

     And a still, small voice
     Says, “I will be your guide
     Through this shadow land….”

When your heart is ready, we will carry on.
When your heart is heavy, then we will rest.
I am here.
Nothing more.
Nothing less.
