The Moment Of Darkness

This is every sad person’s dream;
Every happy person’s nightmare
Every normal person’s death;
Every immortal person’s reality
Everyone has theirs;
Everyone has their moment of darkness.

A runaway
Under the red moon
Crying out for help
Trying to find his way
Through the moment of darkness

Crying underneath the endless world of stars
Wondering how and why he’s still here
He’s fixing to find his way
Through this moment of darkness.

Will anyone care?
He doesn’t know.
Would anyone find him?
He fears the worst.
He feels it in his blood
No one will reach out to him
In his moment of darkness.
