Condemned    ....    to Become  

 A line has been drawn across my life
I no longer talk about the past
It is locked up inside me
No one can understand

I do not cry
I am as hard as wood
What could tears change?
What can be done about anything?

Whatever happens
it’s not up to me
I accept      I tolerate      I adapt
All the time I adapt

And I don’t get involved
I am outside it all
on the side-lines

I keep to myself
I have few friends
Why should I cause others
to suffer pain unnecessarily?

After what has happened
I can’t be religious
The universe is indifferent
I know that I am
