Echoes of sadness resounding all around.
Sometimes I wish for silence, and not a single sound.
Evil stalks every doorway, ever alley and every street.
Is it lurking behind every face that I come across, and meet?
Some people are but shadows, passing silently from sight.
Preferring the darkness to any shade of light.
We all carry sadness but not always is that recognised.
Some hide it well behind a mask of smiling disguise.
Come away from the sadness and the evil that eats away,
Learn to love again, and live a brighter day.
