The Lone CryPain for years,
inspired by another on EP,
I too let the words flow tonight.
My heart is bruised, my mind, so afraid,
I have never known a life w/o fear,
without guilt, shame, self-consciousness.
I miss my brother tonight, gone again
out of my life, lost to his mental illness,
both of us abused by the father,
only one of us could deal,
i still remember the flight of the birds,
the lone cry of the white wolf,
and the beauty in his eyes as we walked on the beach
and he said, "I'm giving you energy".
they could not take our bond away.
there is so little love in the world,
there is so much pain and fear,
and i have known too much for one soul to bear.
god, where are you as i try so hard to be ok
and i am more teenager than grown woman
because i never got to be a child at all?
i ask you to heal my heart and mind
and the hearts and minds
of all like me,
ravaged as we tried to sleep
by the evil men who took what they liked,
then paid nothing for their crime.
i cry still,
the lone cry of a wolf
that no one has ever really heard
