Tree of Life

A feeling of emptiness,
amidst laugher and joy,
it feels so hollow;Tree of Life

deep down inside,
as my mind drifts away
to a world full of dreams
and unimaginable possibilites;

as i stare listlessly into this matrix,
the beating of my heart reverberates through my soul,
emotions trying to take control and i
realize i am running on empty;

exhausted,  i try not to think,
as the clouds pass by, i wonder if
this tree of life has ceased to have a meaning;

as the battle to live goes on,
in silence i sit in the shadows,
for the scars to fade away and
paint my dreams afresh;
