Lifeless Among The Living

A tree standing lifeless among the living
Cancer of the soul gripping its being
Once holding numerous dreams visible to all
Ready to answer life's challenging call
Becoming confused by the winds of change
Allowing its dreams to be scattered
As if they meant nothing at all
Falling prey to the storms, to fear
From inside the tree comes a sound:
The sound of a tear
Having permitted its newborn vision
To slip away
No longer was anything clear
At one time so full life -- So full of hope
Now standing lifeless among the living
