The Tunnel

I'm in my darkest day
I can't see a little in it
I'm calling out for help
If there is any one out there
Show a little kindness
Shine your light to brighten my day
Or scream my name
So I can hear and find a way to the daylight

The light I had was killed by haters
Now darkness arose the day
For the steps I take
I heat the wall and get hurt
From my growing up was a brighter time
With so much visions and dreams
Never I thought about been trapped
And strucked by this darkness

Darkness of greed and selfishness
Blood tasters and looters
The darkness of corruption and conspiracy
Porverty and insecurity
And calamities arisen
All the days getting darker
Darker than the night itself
Only if lux of heaven shines upon us.

and there are lights to shine. If enough people shine their lights at the same time, maybe we can guide to the end of the tunnel. I am sorry for your country's troubles, maybe someday, all the people in your country will stand up at the same time and the darkness will be defeated. I think that day is not far off. I hope that it goes well. You are a great voice for the people, keep writing. ~ Geez.

It seems that the days and hours that people
are available for chatroom are staggered and
not a good match for most everyone. How about
if everyone just shows up at the door, whenever
they have a few free minutes?

Your comment really give me a hope and I also believe that that day is not far away thanks so muxh
