Hearing Nothing

Screams from a forest

About to devour a small child

Reaching, grasping for air

She’s never able to obtain.

Grieving a small part of me

A lifetime quickly passes by

As I drive past that forest

Where I let her die.

 

Scenes play out in my mind

Reminders of all I lost in a fight,

That was never mine.

 

Hearing nothing from those meant to protect me

I carry on with a life

Where the secret of the forest

Nearly devours me.
