Life exists

by T.E.D

Do I believe it when, I say,
I can surmount all odds to define a way.
When the light that shines is bright and gay,
Where the wind blows the sun away!

When the clouds that carry mist and foam,
Gather around my meager home.
Covering it with braces of gold,
In their dark clutches forever they will hold.

Taunted bruised in a golden cage.
Spoon fed hunger of thoughts take rage.
And the golden shackles of clouds break hold.
When I shout aloud, life exists, behold!

And, now my way is defined I say.
The light of sun will ever shine this way.
For forever day and night,
This disease forever I will fight.

And with one final yell, I will fall,
Even, if my name is in a fameless hall.
Remember the words if not me.
Far from heaven or hell when I scream,
There is nothing more real than a dream.

-- T.E.D
