I was,where

I WAS A CHILD LOCKED IN THE DARK,
WHERE WAS THE LIGHT,
I WAS AFRAID OF FOOT STEPS IN THE DARK,
WHERE WAS THE RESPITE,
I WAS A PLAYTHING FOR THEM,
WHERE WAS THE HERO WHEN I COUNTED TO TEN,
I WAS FRACTURED INSIDE MY HEAD,
WHERE WAS THE JUSTICE, WHEN MY SOUL BLED,
I WAS OLDER, BITTER , FULL OF RAGE,
WHERE WAS THE COMFORT IN THIS COMING OF AGE,
I WAS A SOLDIER, MORE THAN BATTLE SCARRED,
WHERE WAS THE LOVE I FOUGHT FOR SO HARD,
I WAS THE DRINKER TO DROWN THE SORROW,
WHERE WAS THE PROMISE OF A BETTER TOMORROW,
I AM THE DEVIL YOU CREATED,
WHERE ARE THOSE WHO HURT ME, I HATED,
GONE TO HELL I HOPE,
WHERE IS THE KNIFE, I REACH FOR THE ROPE,
I AM STEEL FORGED IN TERRIBLE FIRE,
I AM ALWAYS AT THE END OF THE WIRE,

Very mooving, but don't despair.
Round the corner is sun and breeze,
They will always give you ease.
