Where is the beauty

In an artificial smile

...

Where is the hope

In a world of broken dreams

...

Where is the love

In a heart that's full of thorns

...

Where is the trust

In a friendship riddled with betrayal

...

Where is the light

In a battered and broken soul

...

Where is the intelligence

In a mind corrupt with evil

...

Where is the good

In an ulterior motive

...

Where is it?

Please tell me

Because I can't see

Through the darkness

Of this world
