Orphan Made Good

This capacity for courage
Born out of the terror
Honesty can be brutal
So I go on pretending
To be deluged by love
You took away my name
For I am an inspiration

It was a kind of violation
The fashion for compassion
I am bereft yet somehow brave
Could this be the love I crave
I am your project
I am your creation
I have been enslaved
I am the one you saved
