~ Lost In The Shadows ~
A Teen In Trouble

He was such a bright young boy
For his parents pure delight and joy
His Mother would watch him at play
seeing that no harm would come his way

His parents taught him right from wrong
and how to keep his spirit strong
Such pleasure watching him grow so tall ...
He was a good student and loved by all

A great looking kid
as he entered his teens
but was soon filled with self-doubt
and low self-esteem

Struggling as all teens do among his peers
he started changing and was filled with inner fears
With lack of strength and loss of pride
He turned to drugs and the dark side

Engulfed in dark clouds of confusion
his mind and spirit lost to drugged delusions
He's lost, trapped in a shadowy hell
where only the demons of his soul dwell

His Mother fights through her tear filled eyes
for a son who once was so innocent and shy
As his faith and hope begins to dim
Will he give in to the darkness surrounding him?

Can he fight these demons of hell
will his strength of spirit prevail ...?
Lost in shadows, forsaken on a path of his own
Doesn't he know he's loved and not alone?

As his parents struggle and feel so defeated
Doesn't he know how he's loved and needed?
What will happened to this bright young lad
A son so loved ...
And the pride of his Mom and Dad

A troubled teen lost in the shadowy dark
while his Mother withers from a broken heart
As family and friends offer him life lines
... will they reach this young teen in time?
