"To the one that is lost"

"To the one that is lost"

A Poem by Ovi-Odiete
"

To the one that life has tortured so badly, you can smile again....

"
They never knew who you were,
they saw a demon inside,
but I saw an Angel within,
they mocked you,
and ridiculed your pain....
They scared your emotions

And

You tried to smile amidst sorrow,
you held your composure,
Even in the shadows,
you still searched for hope,
Something was going wrong,
someone was watching

Yes

I saw you, change from
Cold to bitter, and bitter
to Fire
you became a flame, burning
everyone that dared your lane,
you hid your soul
and gave your worse

That
made you STRONG
that was your PAIN
that was your SHAME,
turning away from reality
to the desperate land of illusion

But

You became weak,
you gave all hope
and lay down low,
I guess it was too tough on you,
I guess you felt wasted and abandoned,
you even forgot your name,
you settled for less

IT WAS
not until sunset, that you gave all
your desires,
and threw all, you retired....
that strength never came back,
that smile was long gone,
that fire was now quenched

THAT ZEAL,
died in shambles,
and you felt ashamed,
you withdrew yourself,
fighting everything that exists,
Running from your own shadows,
And now you are a recluse

BUT,
Strength comes from weakness,
Hope comes from pain,
LOVE comes from hate,
LIFE comes from death,
YOU have all you desire....
ALL the strength lies within

STAND
UP,
and face the world,
this journey is not over,
someone is waiting for you out there,
someone wants to offer his friendship,
someone wants to offer his kindness,,,,,
Search for that


THAT
which belongs to you,
that which waits for you,
that which longs for you,
AND then your heart will become lighter,
AND YOU WILL SMILE AGAIN..
