Darkness in the daytime

Loneliness at nights

Walk out on the playground

Not one real friend in sight

.....

First bell in the morning

Blood-shot in one eye

Laughter in the classroom

Teacher out of sight

.....

I wonder when nighttime

If God ever see my plight

I gaze up through my window

I pray

I wish

I cry

.....

I dread the morning after

For me the sun don't shine

.....

Graffiti on my locker

Words so bold and bright

I read each word in silence

Each one a different lie

.....

"Your mom's a mental patient

Your father is just not right

Your home is in the shelter

How do you sleep at nights

.....

Your sister is loser

Her hair is full of lice

You have no friends to play with

At 3:00 the other eye."

.....

That night as I was weeping

I saw these flashing lights

The smell of something burning

The smoke was thick and white

.....

He lived just one street over

The bully that no one liked

Was sleeping like a baby

He couldn't fight that night

.....

First bell Monday morning

We all gathered outside

The playground was much brighter

The bully was not in sight

.....

That night I sat and wondered

If God could hear my prayer

I gazed up through my window

I prayed but did not cry

.....

I whispered in my prayer

Please let Brian be alright
