A Beacon of Tears


Brother why did you leave me

I’m feeling down and have nowhere to turn

You walked away I’ve no place to stay

The monsters out but I can’t seem to shout so I’ll just lead myself astray

Mother why did you leave me

I needed your protection from the monster within

You were afraid but did not say

You too were in the clutches of thIs foreboding sin

Father why did you forsake me

I’m innocent and I’ve nowhere to turn

The sins of our fathers hold no boundaries nor does conscience remain

The pain runs deep and continues to burn with distain

Daughter why have you left me

You were my only light

My grief has paralyzed and stricken me

Once again I am alone in this fight
