Old And Gray

Inside Out

Windows black curtains drawn

Hurting stops after dawn

Wanted love, wanted joy

Didn’t want to be a toy

Wanted laughter wanted not

But sad and tears is what I got

Was I so bad? Am I to blame?

Was I the reason for the shame?

I’m old and gray here today

And yet this pain won’t go away.

Sometimes I sit and wonder why

Why wasn’t I allowed to die?

I still want to even today

Even though I’m old and gray
