There are many times when I feel I am alone,
There are many moments when I feel no one comes along.
But here I stand pretending to be strong,
Deep inside, I can’t take this for so long.
I once tried to stand but they stepped on me,
I once reached for their hands,
But they didn’t reach for me.
I once cried out loud but even one didn’t hear me,
I once shouted for help but no one rescued me.
I am already tired and weak in this life!
I can’t think which is wrong and right!
I can’t find my way to light,
‘Cause I think I can’t survive.
