To see the sunrise in a smile

To see a forest in the eyes

To focus on the pure and beautiful

Only to be despised

To walk with a heart of feeling

To understand the world of pain

To choose to be good and giving

Only to find scorn and blame

To reach out with arms of healing

To speak words of calm and peace

To only find a soul that’s reeling

Yearning for eternal release

To yearn for the light

yet feel only darkness inside

To run in fear of flight

Yet find nowhere to hide

To curse your life

To curse the day you came to be

On this forsaken planet

That you can neither understand nor see
