Slave Read Count : 21

Walked along for miles
With the sound of my chains
Drove me wild 
Made me insane

Who was I supposed to be
When all around only darkness I see
And the love and salvation that I wished for
Could not be found in all I could see

I was just a slave 
To those things I abhor
Coming back for seconds
While groveling on the floor

I hear a whisper
Of a thing I should know
I hear a voice
Calling me through a door 

And how am I to know
Discern wrong and right
When I don’t know the voice
Calling in the night

Who was I supposed to be on the day I was born
When I was too young to know of a mind
And the truth and understanding were beyond my ken 
And artifacts and history were not something to teach me their ways
