Corridors of the City
She steps along the cold blacktop with her naked feet
She would never win against life, never defeat
All she could do is bring tears from strife
But what good would it do?
She was alone, walking the dark corridors of the city
She gazed around at the buildings silhouetted against the midnight blue
A sigh escaped her lips followed by a whisper "No one wants me...
I do not belong in such a segregated place."
The cold breeze makes her shiver
As well as the icy tears that cover her face
"I'll never belong, never..."
She glances back at her traveled road
And there she saw him
She gripped tight on her coat
She thought him to be very handsome
But he faded away a moment after
She let out a second sigh and turned back to her coming ways
She heard only the breeze, no crying, no music, not even laughter
She continued to follow through the maze
Hoping to find another in the corridors of the city that was so stale
For this barefooted girl, it was a labyrinth to heaven from her present Hell
