Empty Within

An empty heart equals an empty life
I the feel cold within I feel so much strife
What is love? Can you tell me how it feels
I've read the scrolls, I've broken the seals
They tell a story, one I have never known
Through my travels in life I have been all alone
No one to encourage me, no one to uplift my soul
With love, I am a clumsy as a new born foal
Galloping along with feeble legs I fall
No strength within to allow me to stand tall
Head hung low while I walk across this earth
Never knowing love, neither knowing my true worth
Where my heart once was, now abides a bloody rag
As I am subdued I raise my white flag
