Seeing this place,
desolate, quiet, lonely,
I think of the
people led here,
all with common faces
wrinkles and gloomy,
I can see beyond
their faces
and hear
their hearts
speaking with one
voice, same song,
broken promises
soul forsaken,
I know your silence
are unspoken words,
I have neither
walked your path
nor walked in your
shoes to know the
depth of your pain
or feebleness,
I only hope
the calm in
this place,
gives your
mind rest,
uplift your soul,
guide your spirit
and stir you
back to life.
