God's Child

I am feeling ferocious pain
Clenching my heart
Then reaching my brain
When the whys have disappeared
As the truth I have found
From the core of my sorrows
That was hidden in the dark
Engulfing a sulking child
Crying for a hand
That's nowhere to be found
Except the brutal light
From the mouth of mockers
Or the poisonous arrows
From the conceited disdainful eyes
Compelling him to yell
What I have done
Why it has become like this
But he couldn't find the answers
For he hears the echoes of screams
Of his insane kin
In an unsafe valley
Soon be flooded by the fierce waves
That will take him away
In a bottomless pit
And turn him frantic and afraid
But none commiserated over the years
And left him away
With the inhabitants of the dark
Ardently trying to pull him in
While he clenched the chains of hope
Of being the recipient of His grace
That transformed into a wish
With a belief that he would realize
For this pain will subside
In a passionate boy
Striving hard for that wish
To rise and climb
And witness the crimson sky
Harbouring the friendly clouds
Coalescing the water till they fall
With the gentle rays of a novel sunrise
