Through the eyes of a child I saw hate;
The kind that children should never see.
They hated where I came from,
But in reality, hated me.
Through the eyes of an adolescent I saw confusion
Why nobody came to my aid.
Memories of a child forgotten
Thank fuck those memories fade.
Through the eyes of an adult I saw redemption
In death and lives unfulfilled.
Wrangled in a past I hated
Yesterday, I killed.
