The hollow sound of strummed silence plays on and on in my heart;Still trying to find a voice
A place to thrive and somehow survive
With a mind full of talent
Still ever so silent
Suppressed and depressed
I continue to press forward for it is best
For now is the real test to be better than my best
A round of applause but still I pause waiting in vain and still feeling the pain of all that I’ve done
But have I really won?
The test of my time,
Is the reward finally mine?
A peace of mind to attain even though there is still a stain,
Is my mind somehow still chained?
Searching for a place to belong is still my song…
