A child grows with no love
His hatred for the world consumes
He becomes hard
Knowing only that he has
But one friend
He looks out at the world
And thinks of a message he would send
He wonders to himself
How he will raise a child
For if no love is given
Can one give
The child becomes a man
He battles with himself
For he knows he can
Not blame the world now
But he wants what was lost to him
He hopes every time he gives his love
That he will find peace
And that the child in him will
Learn to love
But love is elusive
He can not wait forever
But will love forever
To whom he thinks he knows
Will she love him forever
His fear this is what
He wishes would be elusive
