Lost as I am

Lost as I am, 

I survived the raid.

Those throwing stones didn't know my name.

Lost as I am,

still I wait.

The patience came from within.

Lost as I am,

I trusted your judgement,

a mistake I made again and again. 

Lost as I am,

I followed the heartbreak,

and it led me to my fate.

Lost as I am, 

I never thought that I'd be here.

Socially rejected, living in fear.

Lost as I am,

I continue drawing my map,

the X lays in my lap.

Lost as I am,

I lived through it all,

through the years and through the tears.

Lost as I am,

forever stayed day to day.

I still found my way.
