HOPE

Wide open spaces beckon Come breath Come sing The harsh cold wind blows in the distance A reminder The familiar A faint voice Weakened by my awakening Now a distance memory I can still feel it I can still taste the hopeless It's dark damp Moving farther and farther away From my present From my [...]
