Who Will Save Their Souls In Forever Autumn?

Feelings of Sadness

A windy Autumn’s day sounds against the windows
Tree’s swaying from side to side in their bid for freedom
I watch them in understanding and know their sorrow
Rooted to the spot, unable to move to a new Kingdom

All is circumstance and fate in a world of lost souls
No direction to go, confused, angry and bitter
At a world they swim in like a fish in its bowl
But here and there their minds flitter

Why do some people see what’s right in front of them
Others only see what they really want to
In their own little world, selfish needs their Zen
But who will save their soul’s when needed, will you?

Like the tree trying to escape the force of the wind
They try to escape the power of the human spirit
For people fear what they don’t comprehend
Blowing in the wind they spit

Who will save their souls in forever autumn
Who will show them the way to freedom
Who will save their souls in forever autumn
Who will shield them from the darkness they imprison
