The Voice of the Child


hiding eyes

 

The Voice of the Child

Look in my eyes can you see

Life filled with complete misery?

Look in my eyes can you say

Tomorrow will be a better day?

Well , tomorrow is now and things are the same.

I am still nothing to most but a faceless name.

Hurt more now than ever before

With each day bringing more and more.

Unpleasant thoughts to keep me down,

Things to turn my smile to a frown.

Why am I cursed with a life like this?

A faceless name that nobody will miss

A life filled with so much pain

A faceless name with nothing to gain.
