CHILD OF THE NIGHT

March 2005


Where are you headed child of the night?

What are you looking for –
pain or delight?

Who are your partners,
What do they care?

Where are you going child of the night?

Eating from garbage cans,
Sleeping in alleys,
Losing yourself to
Become one with the night.

Do you miss the bird songs,
Clouds in the sky;
The laughter of children
That sounds so sweet?

Come out of the darkness Child of the night.
You have so much to live for,
Let in the light.

The Light warms your soul,
Will chase away shadows
That ruins your view.
The Light will always swallow the night.

Awaken, oh child
See your potential that screams
To be loosed.
