I’m a motherless child, born of sweat and tears,
I’m the fatherless wild, unkempt and lost in fear,
I’m the orphaned mind, left for dead in the cold,
I’m the nameless blind, shunned by the holy fold.
I’m all of these things, and I am nothing.
I’m what no one seeks and no one finds.
I’m the last one on earth worth trusting.
I’m everyone that no one wants inside.
I’m a motherless child, with no heart I can give,
I’m a fatherless wild, left alone for all of time,
I’m the orphaned mind, forgetting each day I live,
I’m the nameless blind, shining among the sublime.
