A New World

Remembering my past I sigh

And once again I start to cry

Seeing the scars across my arm

I think how I wish they were gone

Where once was hope is now an abyss

And all of my happiness I will miss

My chest feels weighted down with lead

My body is numb from my toes to my head

I dream of a time when I feel no more pain

I dream that my scars will just go away

I wish for a time where Dad is still here

I hope for a time when I don't live in fear

But I know I can't take back all the hurt I have caused

And I can never have back all the things I have lost
