• Eyes unopened, words unspoken
    Skin burnt to a crisp
    My chance at life thrown away before it had begun
    My family in ruins, my soul unloved

    Alone I am not
    In this place of sorrow
    Each one like me
    All stories the same
    Today I join the thousands
    Each of us confused and hurt

    Would I have been great?
    Would I have been loved?
    I wonder to myself
    Not able to ask out loud

    And as the seasons change
    And the years go by
    My unnamed soul is forgotten
    Like all the rest
    My chance at life
    Come and gone
    My small heart
    Still and silent
