It’s Dark, I Cannot See by Gary R. Ferris
It’s dark, I cannot see,

Left alone to be;

Friends cannot be found;

By these chains, I am bound.


The world has turned against me,

As I cry upon my knee.

My enemies have mocked,

And my allies they have talked.


They have surely gathered,

To take all I have away.

I seek comforts of the past,

But just like wine it didn’t last.


Oh where is the light,

That used to shine so bright.

Have I been forsaken,

And all I have taken.


Where is the comfort,

And all of the support?

All have left and scattered,

Guess I didn’t matter.


It’s dark, I cannot see,

Lord shine your light on me.
