It's over.

Everything I'd hoped for

Everything I dreamed

Is gone

Wiped clean away

Everything I worked for

The one thing I wanted

Destroyed by the influences of others

What good can one person do

In the life of another?

What good is one positive influence

Against a multitude of bad ones?

And so, it's over

And I've given up

I don't have the strength

The patience or the will

To keep trying

Because I know I will be defeated in the end

It's over
