Nobody's somebody.

A little peek behind the eyes of those we quickly look away from.

You know I'm there that pushed aside stray,I'm society's forsaken castaway.We're nobody's somebody, suffering with a secret tear,In a world that wasn't made to be fair, where are those that truly care.

I'm the frightened child crying myself to sleep when daddy has beaten me, I'm your neighbor living in wretched poverty.I'm a starving baby dying in a mothers arms,while you go about buying your daily charms.

I'm the independent woman fighting for my rights,I'm a different color but I feel pain just like the whites.I'm frail and old with failing memory and one foot in the grave,frustrated by your vulgar attitude with a crooked finger wave.

I once lived a life with a true love that I cruelly lost,I'm a descendant of an indigenous holocaust.We're the little children orphaned by tragedy and selfishness,as influential leaders promote division and talk is meaningless.

I'm the injured soldier of warfare back home with futile hope,I'm a lonely child hooked on dope.I'm that person who loves another of the same sex,as the interpreted word of God has made individual lives so complex.

I'm the family member facing death because of cancer, I'm the angst ridden teenager looking for an answer.I'm the special need kid that's wants to be accepted,as you go about clutching technological devices to feel you're truly connected.

You know I'm there that pushed aside stray,I'm society's forsaken castaway.We're nobody's somebody, suffering with a secret tear,In a world that wasn't made to be fair, where are those that truly care.

The End
