a daughter walks alone

silent breaking, day by day

against my will, I run away

afraid of those I used to trust

one breath away from giving up

 

Hope seems but a vague memory

Death now the only victory

was I still capable of pain

it long ago would have killed me

 

stumble now, to the Old Rugged Cross

my stomach pits with this bittersweet loss

pushed apart by those whom once I called friends

just myself and I, do now persist

 

I scream to Heaven; I want to tear out my soul!

 

can I see the reward, is it coming?!

a voice saying “listen only to me”

keep head up now, my child, keep on persisting

and know, The King will never forsake thee
