I stand on the edge of darkness
forked road my eternal divide
Being fed nothing but hatred
How would good grow inside

I stand on the edge of darkness
cold frozen my aching heart
the light within slowly fading
As they slowly feed the dark

I stand on the edge of darkness
prayer voiceless within despair
Never once felt a warm embrace
Not once did anyone say they cared

I stand one the edge of darkness
Shouting screaming is anyone there
Only silence returns with its answer
Feelings of joy caught ensnared

I got lost within the darkness,
all I was fed was hate
Do you even have a choice, If love was taken away
So does the battle within exist, or is written by the fates
The two wolves within, writing prompt
