Where are all the dreams of yesterday
And the hopes for tomorrow?
There is now a forbidden air
Call me superstitious
But I am frightened
Now to enter again
This grave of the lost –
My dreams, my hopes, myself.
Now all I see
By moments of madness
When each time fresh hope awakened
And took me down paths
That I fear to tread again;
I created many more in my image
A different one
For a different time;
Each perhaps hated more than the other
Because they are not the complete me;
My new habitat.
