Tears

by

Lorin Vandall-Walker

To free myself from the tears
From those who have loveless fears
I assure I love them more than I
So much I would lay down to die
But if that love hath not returned
And the loveless fear is spurned
And hate hath conquered thee
And my love they do not see
Then I shall wake from loving slumber
And never more shall I remember
The tears I shed for those who fear
And love no more, and shed no tear
But if love hath truly gaved
Then I hath truly saved
Those, the loveless to not fear
For love is always truly near
To those who want it
And not to break it
So wipe mine eyes and love me too
For I shall love all of you!


Freedom

by

Lorin Vandall-Walker

Flying through the air
With freedom and grace
Bright warmth around me
Lighting up my face
Beyond the pleasant light
Is a lonely dark charade
But I won't stop flying
The light in me won't fade.
In the dark were you are
You watch my honest grace
Your wide-eyed expression,
In awe upon your face.
You can't believe the freedom
And grace I have in me,
I know that you don't see
The errors that I see
But on and on I go
No slacking in my pace
Flying through the air
With Freedom and Grace.

Journey On

by

Lorin Vandall-Walker

Iím walking on glass
Trying to find relief
I cannot see the shards
Cutting into my feet
I know no other way
To where Iím trying to go
Will I even get there?
I donít even know

Help me heal
My bleeding feet
Help me find
My sweet relief
For this road
Seems so long
Give me strength
To journey on_

A stake in my heart
Driving in deeper
I wonít die so,
I fear no reaper
But unending pain,
From invisible scars
Kept in a prison
With invisible bars

Forced to journey
Down this long road
My burden heavy
Will you share my load?

Help me cure
This unending pain
Help me be
Alive once again
For this long road
Seems so long
Give me strength
To journey on_

Obsession

by

Lorin Vandall-Walker

Death
The inescapable fear haunting my mind
Eating away my sanity
Piece by piece
People tell me that I
Should live in the moment and not think
Of it, but when I think ahead
All I can ever see
Is death
I look at my parents
All I see is life fading away
People who used to be so full of joy
And laughter: suddenly old and weary of life.
Itís all around me and I cannot run
Away from all these fears
The things that
Would drive them away only
Remind me again and again of that which
I want to escape from_the fear
Of losing my mind
Through it_
Death
Am I
Crazy? With this
Insane cycle that I have put myself in?
This obsession with the
Inevitable
But even if I am crazy
These thoughts are inevitable
Through themselves.
Is this just a phase in life?
Will I Ďgrow out of ití?
Or_will I grow into it, accepting it?
This marriage to death
This infatuation that is lording over my soul
Driving me insane
With no
Way

Shades of Grey

by

Lorin Vandall-Walker

Grey clouds around me
Surround me again
Keep me from breathing
Again and again
I hate what Iíve come to
I hate that Iíve come to this_
God help me, I hate
My life and my dreams
What am I here for and where are you?
Help me God, help me Iím caving

I watch you crying
Alone in your room
Curled up and dying
A slow, slow death
So many tears so many cries
So many fears, so many Whyís?
Believe in me
Believe in the world around you
Watch the sky; the blue
That surrounds you and me.
Canít you see, canít you see?
So simple, so easy
So pretty itís cheesy
It is not as hard as you think

We are one body?
One body in Christ_
Hell, but I stand alone.
Again and again
I hate what Iíve come to
I hate that Iíve come to this_
God help me, I hate
My life and my dreams
What am I here for and where are you?
Help me God, help me Iím caving

I watch you crying
Alone in your room
Curled up and dying
A slow, slow death
So many tears so many cries
So many fears, so many Whyís?
Believe in me
Believe in the world around you
Watch the sky;
The beauty that surrounds you
Canít you see, canít you see?
So simple, so easy
So pretty itís cheesy
It is not as hard as you think
