Pain and darkness are all I know. I have never felt love,
Or watched it grow.
My dreams and hopes were destroyed by lies.
The truth was twisted, like the rage in my eyes.
I never received hugs, or words of praise,
Instead I lived in a shadowed haze.
I never knew joy, or a sense of peace, Wrapped in despair,
The hurt grew deep.
Always a feeling that I didn’t belong,
Each time I felt hope, something went wrong.
I am older, but the sadness remains,
Weighing my soul like a thousand chains.
This is the road that hurt has paved.
An injured heart that can’t be saved.
