Take the wind from my back,

Forget the smile that I cast.

My talk hides my shame,

From the world that is here.

The hate that it brings,

All the condemned,

That sit on empty wings.

-

Waiting for their second chance,

Hoping for one last dance.

To fit back in a world that has hid,

A world blinded of misfortune's gifts.

Tempted with foolish pride,

Lustful it’s built, forgetful at will,

Mindless of all those killed.

-

Tortured souls wondering,

Born on soiled ground.

Lost, forsaken land.

Searching for something,

Sorrowed when nothings found.

Turn to those with more,

Left with less than before.

-

For a world with so much,

Little has been untouched.

Few have been giving prosperity,

Many more left with uncertainty.

Praying for another bite to eat,

A safe place to lay their heads,

As nightmares plague their sleep.

-

But does this have to be?

Could we learn to be truly free?

Leave the broken past behind,

Forget all that has left us unwind,

Come together for a better world.

A new hope, a new chance,

A better man.
