I can remember the time, almost a day ago 
when your unkindly words added to my woe 
the lightest of days and the darkest of nights 
your words echoing in my nightly sight 
I strive to carry on, starvation falls fast 
if deprivation appears-will these sights still last 
up and down, on the merry go I go round 
the music blaring loudly yet I cant drown out the sound 
I'm here, I'm yours but now I've gone again 
what would it take for me to remain 
the blemishes, the scars, the knife in my back 
helps me keep my footsteps along the right track 

I hear, I see, I do what I'm learnt 
but I think that enabled me to get my fingers burnt 
I lived, I saw, I've done all I'm taught 
but alas all my trials have come to nought 
I move forward, I move back, I rise and  I fall, 
would there be any open arms to catch me at all
