©Dear Father

I've been here so long
I dont remember when I came
something about this feels so wrong
in here you'd feel the same

I fled from there to face my fears
Ive since stared him eye to eye
a misspent youth so many years
to find he wished I'd die.

I try hard to understand
this wish you have for me
If I could sail away or join the band
so far from this place I'd be.

You smile at me and say good morn
with a very convincing way
but yet Im left feeling so forlorn
I still feel so lonley every passing day.

I try and try and try again
to ignore what I know
I am your ghost I am your bain
but I have no where to go.
