Belonging

By Scheele

Young
Youth is supposed to be carefree
running, jumping, playing
instead
cold, dark, alone
Wandering through this world abandoned
no home, no family, no love
nothing

the darkness envelops
the void deepens
every passing day feeds the
loneliness

brown eyes look up
crying, pleading, begging
people come, people go
still no return of affection
no warm loving embrace
no lips to say "you are loved"
hopeless

suddenly
light shines into the void
blue eyes gaze through wired fence
eyes that know the same loneliness
joy, hope, apprehension
will the darkness end?

new surroundings blurred voices
mind racing
scared
days pass
light surrounds, warmth grows
a home, a family, love
found
blue eyes gaze
arms embrace
and lips that finally say
"you are loved"
