I run on forever,

On a road without end,

One a path of eternity,

Till death I transcend.

 

From fences I run,

From torture and scorn,

From hate and pain,

For Freedom I yearn,

 

But a child I am,

Yet I have seen so much more,

And it is for this pain,

That I seek a cure.

 

Despite blisters and bleeding,

Despite the cold and the pain,

Though I so sadly fear,

That my struggle be in vain.

 

As tears fall from my eyes,

And give out do my feat,

For I tire of the sadness,

And the never ending beat.

 

But I run on and on,

For the hope in my heart,

That never again,

That such a horror can start.
