Even though I walk through the darkest valley I will fear no evil. Psalm 23:4, For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord. Plans to prosper you, not harm you plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11

It's raining with no clouds.

This silence is so loud.

I wish there was a way,

I could take this guilt away.

I wish have seen, 

The evil seed in me.

Now I can't change the past.

But no longer should this last.


I told myself that I was right.

That is why I still fight.

I wish you would say,

that the past is washed away.

You saw the cold heart of stone. 

You witnessed rust cover gold.

But maybe the best of friends,

come to be when battles end.

@Mag;) Great poem! Emotional and symbolic, and I think if you can add the feelings and people passing beside you like memories from the past, it would make it better.
