The poem is below.



I am an orphan on God's highway 
All the warriors gathered around 
to take all of the child of the lost and found 
To a shelter home 
I'll share my troubles if you go my way
to tell my story of better days 
I have no mother, no father
I only had been left with a note 
with no hope to ever know love
No sister, no brother
but the new one I have made along the way
I am an orphan girl that no one loved
I have had friendships pure and golden
until they all came dark with no heart
as I got older I kept my heart with God 
But someone had his eyes on me 
Only love can hurt like this
must have been given a deadly kiss
with time he started playing games on me
Your kisses burn into my skin
eating away at my heart over and over again
Only love can hurt like this 
when you live in a world of darkness.
