As I walk slowly down a road that leads me no where 
No one notices tears falling or even act that they care, 
They walk by with neither a glimpse nor a quick stare. 
 I am Ignored while my broken soul is here, laying bare. 

This sky is overcast and the future seems gray, 
I wonder where life take me by the end of this day. 
I steady search for a memory of life back then 
Of a once young boy of either nine or maybe then. 

The time where life seemed so innocent and pure, 
The way things look when you're young and immature. 
I remember laying in the shade of a great green pine 
Dreaming of the future that I thought would be mine. 

What happened to the boy that I used to be, 
Smiling in the mirror while staring back at me? 
That boy I used to see has long been left behind 
A withered look in the mirror is all that I can find.
