THE VICTIM

THE VICTIM

 

 

The pathway disinherited

which none but he walk down,

no resting place for memories

upon his trodden ground.

 

Condemned to grief and solitude

release denied from his ordeal

by unbelief in turn of fate

with wounds that never heal.

 

Indicted by false testimony

with urban calls unbowed

the taunting echoes still remain

his soul cries out aloud.
