In the Darkness of My Mind

MJSJR 1964 (Albuquerque, NM)

In the darkness of my mind
In the recesses of time
In the distance, stark and bold
Is the secret yet untold

In the shadows
In the mists
In the places
most would miss

In the quiet of the night
In the places out of sight
In the gloom of yesterday
Is the blackness that still holds sway

Be I monster, Be I man
Only my brothers can understand
Off we went to foreign land
To make a difference
To take a stand

But still the memories linger here
And the doubts with all the fears
Yes, I see them standing near
Many faces oh so clear

In the darkness of my mind
In the recesses of time
In the distance stark and bold
Are the secrets forever untold

n the shadows
In the mists
In these places
My mind twists
