Inner Search


Alone I sit in a darkened room

surrounded by despondent gloom

I’m all alone within a crowd

all is quiet, and yet is loud

Where have I gone? For I cannot see

the elusive cause for my misery

‘Tis locked away within in my mind

the special key – I cannot find

Such changes that have taken place

casting me deep into inner space

Who am I? I no longer know

Tell me please where I should go

to find the truth, the radiant light

that will restore my stolen sight
