When the sun descended and the night arose

I heard my father cursing everyone he knows

My mother whinging as she lazed around

Comparing me to the dirt on the ground

Life was the nightmare

Dreams were there

When all the light was gone

The healing dreams would go on

Friends just felt sorry for me

I never asked for their pity

All I ever wanted was happiness

Now everyone reminds me of what I missed

How could I not know how to hate?

I don't know if I believe in fate

I know the misery of pain

I feel it again and again

They say I'm withdrawn and quiet

I should stop this inner riot

I'm a pliable child in a chaotic world

And they say I'm at a difficult stage

I've been through the fires of hell

I have the ashes; they'll prove it well

I've been through pain in the dirt

I have all the scars to prove the hurt

When the sun descended and the night arose

I heard my father curse everyone he knows

My mum whinged and lazed around

Whilst comparing me to dirt on the ground
