The hopeful glimmer in my eyes
Just turned to blurry crystal ice
As I head a resounding crack
That signals them to an attack

Unfamiliar greetings I see
Shatter walls inside so slowly
As a child I hid long inside
Finally awakes, who then decides

To break from the family’s care

Yet as the child screams within me
Knowing I cannot let this be
Only a few, new words came out
That showed my entire self-doubt

Gushes of wind pierced through the air
As dusty old sprouts came to bear
Witness to this horrible tale
Of a crybaby doomed to fail

Whose only living for today

The family knows and pretends
After all, it is their own tale
Made from all the random ramblings
Of lies, truth, hope, and prophecy
