Laughter, sweet sunshine in the presence of you
Declaring nothing, but bitter berries;
That resemble your face.
I cannot begin to dream the tomorrows,
Nor the tainted agreements that are untrue.
Why, why did you leave me to shiver in the bitter cold?
When I had nothing, but your hatred
I was alone, I was beaten
I was your fantasy there in your deluded mind
What did I ever do to you as you beat me?
You singed my hair with cigarettes as I walked home from school
You tripped me up in the hallways
You locked me in and shoved me in the bin
You laughed as I cried in sorrow
You mocked me and told me I should die
So I studied as you laughed
Now you're the one left with nothing
And now it is I who is in the mould.
