The toy rejected
The child unloved
The leader un-followed
And the follower un-led
The heart of a man
Many years a senior
The soul of child
Buried deep within
Everything you say
Everything they all said
Nothing I think
Nothing I wish
What is this all?
It is I
I am the broken toy
Rejected by all
But the most vile of toy makers
I am the child
Cowering in fear
I am the man
With wisdom beyond my years
I am the one
Used and abused
Forced into a place
I did not choose
Forced to submit
Till my will disappears
Forced to believe everything thatís been said
I am the hideous Quasimodo
I am the stupid child
Forced upon my knees
I am this all
I am what they say
They are my creators
And I am their clay
My eyes averted
From the creature Iíve become
My spirit crumbling
As memories are unleashed
Yes, I am what they have created
I am not my own
Their hands branded on my heart
And seared into my soul
I am not my own
I am not yours
I am theirs
As I always have been
And always will be

Scott,

This is a powerful testament to what a lot of us have been through, have become, and will grow out of.

We never forget, but I'm told we can get beyond this pain. I'm starting to, I think. And I think you are too.

I'd also like to add that you're "a child of the light coming out of the darkness."

Peace and love, my brother. You've made me think.

Scot
