Empty Faces

A Busy footpath in the heart of Dublin

 

I look around me,
And I see so much Sadness.

I look around me,
And I see so much joy.

I look around in crowded places
I look at all the empty faces,

It’s as if Joy is always flowing
Like the air all around us
But we roam around with a lung

Wondering how can people look as happy as they do.
Then one day we breathe out that dark smoke,

Perfectly good dreams,
They could give really good returns
To someone who can pursue them,
I am just not in that place right now
Surely he could offer a decent value against them,
I am good for it!

And the filth this world has to offer,
And that is scary, I know.
But if you are still around
Then you also know
That you are too strong for
The darkness to devour.
