Hope is lost when colors have faded
Faith is gone when voices have been silenced
Everyone thinks that our journey is ending
But really is has just begun
Blinds are closed because the light means nothing
Windows, doors all shut to block out everything within reach
Everything which is like the forbidden fruit in the
Story of Adam and Eve
Now our thoughts crowd us
The sun and the heat taunting us
The laughing and the smiles we had once before
Now have been swept away to become strings in the distorted clouds.
Although our wings have been clipped
Our hope is not lost because our colors will always be shining
Our faith is not gone because our voices will never be silenced
And our journey has not ended because we are still waiting for the path back to begin.
