Think About Them

by

Cesar A. Miranda

What did I do?
To deserve this pain,
To be confused in vain,
Rejected by them,
Tell me what did I do?
What did I say?
What was my fault?
To get punished like this.

If I didnít ask to come,
I didnít ask to live,
Now you tell me why,
You treat me like this?

If I was only born,
My only fault was life,
My error was to come,
To this world.

If I was only born,
My only fault was life,
My error was to come,
To this world.


I ask myself,
If Iím the only one,
All the marks on me,
Donít make it hard to find,
At the end of the room,
I go and hide,
Trying to forget these horrors,
Closing my eyes.

On I run,
Run away from them,
The room gets closer,
My legs canít stand straight,
After theyíre done,
I just ask myself,
If this is right,
Canít find the answers I search.

If I was only born,
My only fault was life,
My error was to come,
To this world.

If I was only born,
My only fault was life,
My error was to come,
To this world.

If I was only born,
My only fault was life,
My error was to come,
To this world,
There is nothing worth,
Nothing here for me anymore,
The only place I thought I was safe,
I found out I was wrong.

Hear the cries of a boy,
Who suffers every day,
The anger of his parents,
An anger he canít understand (he says).

If I was only born,
My only fault was life,
My error was to come,
To this world.

If I was only born,
My only fault was life,
My error was to come,
To this world.

What did I do?
To deserve this pain,
To get confused in vain,
Rejected by them,
Tell me what did I do?
Was there something wrong with me?
Wrong with myself,
Canít understand why theyíre like this.

If I was only born,
My only fault was life,
Canít understand why,
They treat me like this.

If I was only born...
