Hazard

My road leads me down to Hazard

When I was just eleven

Thinking about how this life has done me wrong

All of the dignity in me is gone

With prejudice eyes everyone thinking about me

Two years ago when I came across him

He saw the real girl inside

Walk down by the street

No one understood the way I felt for him

Everyone knew who we were

Not even he knew but secretly I didn’t want to be found

I went walking the streets alone

I never wanted to come back home

This life was a hazard to my mind

Killing me slowly over years

I know he was blamed for losing me

But no one cared or listened until after I was dead

My mind became a hazard to him

I didn’t want him to face the same hazard I faced

I became a hazard when I was just eleven

Barely anyone chose to dig deeper inside than just the rough shell

I hoped that night I walked the street

That I would never be coming back

Now what happened depends on how you look on it

The point is I’m no longer a hazard to myself or him

Thinking about how this life has done me wrong

All of the dignity in me is gone

The End
