These words in my head,

Thoughts in my brain,

They want me dead,

They’ve tried in vain,

 

I left this world,

Of war and rape,

I reached for the door,

Attempted escape,

 

Oh who am I,

But a drifter alone,

Don’t want to die,

Of pains unknown,

 

 

Oh what am I,

But a drifter alone,

An eye for an eye,

Dust turns to stone,

 

Why, oh why me,

It hurts to go on,

There’s nothing left to see,

I must stay strong,

 

You left me vulnerable,

A mass of raw flesh,

The pain was unbearable,

Exposed wounds all too fresh,

 

I must find a strength,

The strength to go on,

Thanks for the truth,

I had it all wrong...
