There are times where I feel all alone,

Like my heart is lost, without a home,

But all it's ever gotten me,

Were situations where I'm not free.

People have kept me from showing who I am,

They have shut me down, time and again,

My feelings have been locked away, partly in fear,

There is no need for them, while I sit here.

A closed heart saved me from the pain,

But I'm nothing but another name,

A strong will saved me from the fear,

But the will broke down, out flew a tear.

The more I gained, the more I lost,

Another's life, was my cost,

I am lost, without a home,

I am hollow, and alone.
