The Unforgiven

2020 – 2022

By Kim J Vermeulen

“New blood joins this EarthAnd quickly he’s subduedThrough constant pained disgraceThe young boy learns their rules
With time the child draws inThis whipping boy done wrongDeprived of all his thoughtsThe young man struggles on and on, he’s known
Ooh, a vow unto his ownThat never from this dayHis will they’ll take away
What I’ve felt, what I’ve knownNever shined through in what I’ve shownNever be, never seeWon’t see what might have been
What I’ve felt, what I’ve knownNever shined through in what I’ve shownNever free, never meSo I dub thee unforgiven
They dedicate their livesTo running all of hisHe tries to please them allThis bitter man he is
Throughout his life the sameHe’s battled constantlyThis fight he cannot winA tired man they see no longer cares
The old man then preparesTo die regretfullyThat old man here is me
What I’ve felt, what I’ve knownNever shined through in what I’ve shownNever be, never seeWon’t see what might have been
What I’ve felt, what I’ve knownNever shined through in what I’ve shownNever free, never meSo I dub thee unforgiven”
