Lost Boy


Lost Boy


A reflection in the puddle of his mind


gave him a reason to make a change.


An aimless wanderer lost in the rain.


Looking for his place in the cruel world.


Sometimes life can make a heart grow


cold and forget the love it once held.


The love a child holds. The type of passion


that only a young soul can burn with.


He learned tricks along his path to beat


and suppress the child he once was. Until


that fateful day, when he remembered that


reflection and pulled the lost boy from underneath


the dark cloud that had overshadowed his life for


so long. Turning himself into a lover of the light
