Out From The Darkness

Out From The Darkness

A Poem by Undying Glory
"

My first duet song/poem, about achieving your dreams. Enjoy!

"
Out From The Darkness

Him: In the darkness that surrounds me
Shattered dreams are all that I see
And I'm staring across my fallen hopes
And their words

Her: They say I'm not good enough to make it
Forget everything, and don't fake it
As their mocking laughs echo round
How it hurts

Him: Let them laugh, but I'm gonna make it
For all my hopes and dreams
Her: It's my chance, and I'm gonna take it
'Cause that's what I believe
Both: And with you I'll soar with my dreams to the distant sky
'Cause we're gonna prove we can make it if we try
So take my hand now

Both: Fly on our dreams forever
Not stopping now, not ever
We're gonna show the world who we really are
Stand alone in this small town
And get up when we fall down
Hold you now as we reach for the distant stars
And out from the darkness, we soar into the sky
'Cause our dreams never die

Him: Like the sun breaking out after a storm
Now I see what I never saw before
And I'm searching for all the answers
In your eyes

Her: Like the leaves tumbling from trees in the fall
I'm among a thousand stories never told at all
And it's still too hard for us just to
Ignore the lies

Him: Let them think we're the misfits
But we know what we're fighting for
Her: And I know we can all be special
Yeah we can all be something more
Both: And with you I'll stay as the darkness falls around
'Cause you're the only light that can be found
And I understand now

Both: Fly on our dreams forever
Not stopping now, not ever
We're gonna show the world who we really are
Stand alone in this small town
And get up when we fall down
Hold you now as we reach for the distant stars
And out from the darkness, we soar into the sky
'Cause our dreams never die

CODA
Him: A hundred thousand broken hearts
The floodgates break open again
Her: But I'll face the world with an open heart
Though I just can't take the pain
Both: 'Cause hope lies in all of us
Believe our hearts are strong
And heroes lie in all of us
When we don't know where we belong

Sorry if it's a little long...
I wrote this after watching an episode of "Glee". lolol
but either way i was struck by everything, about how everyone in the club was ostracized by everyone else. yet they seemed to be the most ambitious and the most willing to struggle to achieve their dreams...

Duets are beautiful. I don't like glee but I love this poem. The visuals and the feelings in this are so deep, but they don't attack the reader. Its a very thin line to walk and you did so very well.

Really great! It's inspiring to people here since I believe almost all of us want to be authors or poets one day.
