I looked and heard
I thought and denied
I was further coerced
and finally complied

Only because it was spoken to me
Only because it was there before me
Only because I was given a choice
Only because I had it in sight

It started to grow within me
and it finally started to seem right

And then when I
began to see and hope
And further when I
took a step and groped,

A silent hand crept by
and took over
It ripped my heart out
and trampled on it,

All over, and over, and over...
