Are You there? Do You hear me? Have You seen my tears?
Did You see me when I fell? Did You see how it made me feel?
Do You care that I hate myself for never measuring up?
Does it matter to You that I have never felt like I did enough?
Where are You? Why do You not speak so I can hear?
Is it my fault? What must I do? Can You sense my fear?
Why must we be caught up in this age-old war?
Why must some be punished for being victims of evil?
There is much I don’t understand. Will I ever?
I cry for clarity and all I find is chaos. Why?
I am told I must never fall if I do not wish to fail. How?
The darkness must never catch up with me, for if it does, it will surely consume me. Then what?
I’ve been running. Where am I going?
I’ve been fighting. What have I been battling?
I’ve been falling. I’ve been failing.
Has the darkness caught up?
Have I fallen? Has the darkness consumed me?
Do You see me? What is running through Your mind?
What do You feel toward me?
Disappointment? Anger? Pity?
