A Better Place

Written by: Jessica Hanna

I left home 
For a race
Against whom
Promised a better place

I found a light 
I can’t embrace
And turned out to fight
My own grace

I was too hollow 
To find a clue
Of what should follow
That I won’t rue

I can’t believe
I couldn’t see
What lay inside
So close to me

My smile was lame
Life went so slow
Whom shall I blame
Which craved to know

My day’s a strife
I can but face
That makes my life
A better place.
