Just a Bit

Why can't we all dream?
Why do we all scream?
We scream of our fears,
and our eyes fill with tears.
I can't wait for the tension to be unfurled,
then joy will come to the world,
or maybe its already here,
somewhere behind the fear.
Maybe someday, I will see it,
just a bit,
and a smile will cross my face
to light up this dark and lonely place.

You cannot be lonely if you like the person you're alone with. -Wayne Dyer
Leading those who have followed a greater leader without knowing what it is you are doing is the same as wielding a sword against a master of weapons. -Kreepy

I enjoyed the way you have each line rhyming together as well as how they all flow from one to the other smoothly. The form of the poem is simple and sweet and makes one think of the meanings behind words. Delightful piece.
