A Child Walks The Night

A child walks the night
Not seeking friend or foe
Just wandering seeing where he will go
He walks the sidewalk
He counts the cracks
He wonders , wonders should he
Would he, humm, ever go back
He walks till the dawn appears
Strange thoughts in his mind
Thoughts but no fear
He thought they would look for him
But he knew in his heart
The truth that he was unable to bear
He finds his way home
He goes up to his room
Sitting in the corner
He is alone
Night comes again
He knows his life is not right
A child walks the night
