How can I forget

the dreams I never had

the home I never built

the love I never knew.

 

How can I become

the one you said I was:

whisperer of broken dreams

warrior of hope and light.

 

How can I endure

when nothing’s what it seems

freedom’s taken captive

and hope has given up.

 

How can I forget

the words you never said.
