He walks down dark alleys at night.
Searching for evidence of life.
He can't believe the man was right.
His daughter victim of a knife.
Sometimes the mind begins to break.
He can't grasp this reality.
The pain felt with each breath he takes.
Each step steeped in his misery.
He see's a girl that looks like her.
Thinks back to when she was a child.
Overcome by tears his eyes blur.
She had been one so sweet and mild.
Why had his girl become so wild?
