A LITTLE LIFE
The light has left the room.
Must survive the gloom
He says he’s a dancer
A singer a prancer
Drinks my soda and eats my food.
He taps and will shuffle left to right
Leaving the room with the light
dancing away into the night
Strangers paid to come right in
To help me and do what they can
Fear controls my young heart
God, I’m still afraid of the dark.
There are others living in this place
The rooms were small with little space
I couldn’t think and I couldn’t feel
All the time hoping to heal
The first 6 months I didn’t heal
Always asking if this is real
My hands don’t work, my arms are weak
I lost weight, and desire to eat
I could not sit I couldn’t stand
Referred to as a half a man
Disappointment tore at me
Nothing left for me to be
Stole my dreams, took my soul
Time to leave, time to go
How to escape this lasting pain
Leave this life, go insane
Bow to Jesus, hold the cross
Find the love, I have lost.
Find the beauty in her eyes
One more time before I die
Just one more time before I die.
