The Void

written by: Marshall Hughes

@hughes1marshall

 

Verse 1 Conflict

There is nothing, nothing
but a dark, black canvas
of unimaginable energy.
An empty vacuum in space,
hiding a profound sadness.

 

Verse 2 Hope

Out of the void comes light
and out of the aether, life,
love, happiness, and despair.
Banish the chains that bind,
deal with the anguish and strife.

 

Verse 3 Lost

To lose something precious,
unbreakable like a diamond,
forever bound together.
Celebrate her devotion,
Never suffer, never silent.

 

Verse 4 Found

It hurts sometimes, but
embrace unconditional love,
from a parent to a child.
No need to suffer anymore,
let go, surrender, reconcile.

 

Verse 5 Fear

There is nothing to fear
beyond this physical realm.
Like a seductive kiss,
return to the light,
how wonderful to coexist.

 

Verse 6 Freedom

Shine bright in the aether,
accept the dark and light.
Endure, truly embrace,
forever, unending love,
Amazing Grace.
