    An orphan in my family, lives in shadows in
    our house. Born to brother, mother, father,
    still an orphan in our house.
    An orphan in my family, moves quietly through the yard.
    Does laundry, and the dishes; Cries when
    life is just too hard. Trying to be noticed.

    Singing, writing, playing, crying. Still only a dark shadow.
    Running, screaming, yelling, fighting. An orphan in my family,
    though they hear her pray for death... Who
    cares if orphans die? No one hears her gasp
    for breath.

    This orphan in my family, No one
    sees her walk away. She retreats into dark
    dreams, At 10 years old she died today.
    Seeing truth about this family, helps her
    find her one relief. She stopped looking to
    be loved by them; traded hope for peace.

    I, the orphan in the family. Pulled this dream
    out by the roots. There is no father,
    mother, brother, just me in hiking boots.
