Sometimes It Just Takes a Little Reminder

I was reminded
Of what it means
To be human again

Before we became a
World full of Cynicism
And non-believers.

When it was second nature
To take someone
At their word.

When the word hope
Was more than just
A laughable concept.

When people
Were believed
To be able to change.

I was reminded.
That deep down,
I’m still that human being.

Even if I forgot for a little while.

Nightmare

You disappear,
You run away,
But you say your okay.
 
To us,
Your mother, father, friends,
We have lost
you.
 
We try and convince each other,
That there was nothing we could do,
While putting on a brave face,
While not believing any of the words.
 
Surely there was something we could do.
Listen more. Ask more questions.
Anything at all,
Even predicting the future.
 
You lost yourself,
But it was our job,
to get you back to the real you.
To avoid this nightmare.
 
But this nightmare we must face.
We can’t change the past, all we can do is hope,
That when you find yourself,
You will come back to us.
