Doll’s Life

August 14, 2011

When I was a child
I could not understand
Why I was a doll
Whose sole parent was a man

He taught me and nursed me
Till his health it wore thin
And after two years time
His heart it gave in

The life he had longed for
And with my birth had got
Slipped way so easy
–Tis my companions’ lot

For my very existence
Causes life to wane
I’m guilty since birth
And it drives me insane

My one road to freedom
Is to curse another’s life
Doom them to sorrow
And unending strife

No matter the struggle
I cannot give in
To thrust this on a newborn
Is too great a sin

And the years they drag on
And the miles grow long
I refuse to give in
I’ll just add to my song
