Dreams lie shattered, as broken glass.
While laughter is heard, echoing nearby.
In the shadows sits a child, trying
to understand why she is hated?
Her mother brushes her away. Her father
Ignores her, so she hides within the shadows.
To her the darkness feels good, for
she seems to blend into the shadows.
She looks up at a starlit sky, and a tear falls
from her eye, as she silently cries out for love.
Within her brews a storm, full of painful memories.
Until she reaches for the door to nowhere, where
upon the streets of lies, new shadows quickly arise.
After walking for what seems to have been for hours
she returns to a home empty of love, that even the
radio sings a forlorn song.
She walks into her room, and sits staring with starving
eyes. Which search everywhere for a sign of love.
But It comes as no surprise, that her gaze falls upon the
single solitary lamp which brightens up her little room,
and the shadows of her tragic life!
