"Eyes"

By Jeff Dorsey

The eyes are the world are upon me,
why should it be?

If you didn't know me,
then i couldn't be what and who i was meant to be.

But, i am me.
not a sinner nor a saint,
i'm just a person wanting to live,
wanting to give,
but something horrible happened,
and it happened to me.

Love me or hate me, but let me be.
i'm not a threat to you, don't be to me.

Am I the person you expected of me?
...I doubt it...my life was taken from me.

i am the victim of hate,
a crime that shouldn't be.

now the world will never know,
what could have been the beauty of me.

May the eyes of another never see,
what has been done to me.
