I didn’t lose faith in humanity,
humanity robbed me of faith
shard by shard
rhyme by rhyme
time by time
year to year
month to month
week to week
day by day
hour by hour
minute by minute
I was made to stray
as they crushed my hope,
as they bent my will
person by person
trust to trust
in dirt my spirit lay.
