Beast in Darkness

A Beast - is born
And wanders from his home
Eyes not yet open for him to see
Scared - and alone
In the darkness he roams
Looking for the one that he needs

          He knows something is wrong
          Feels he does not belong
          To the cold, dark world he's living in
          Danger is all around
          He learns to work the ground
          Growing bitter as his heart hardens

Shelter - he seeks
From the harsh reality
To replace the home he has lost
Still he feels the pain
Anger, tears and shame
Burdens that bring a heavy cost

          He knows something is wrong
          For in his heart he longs
          For peace that cannot be found
          He needs to feel love
          And the world is not enough
          Anguished by the curs-ed ground

A child - is born
Sent to bring him home
His eyes now open for him to see
Still scared - not alone
He knows that he belongs
The beast I speak of is me

A beast - is born
And wanders from his home
The beast of humanity
