Broken China    6th November 1996

“Hidden Fear”    (Wright, Gordon)

Why do we feel this adult pain
And hold these secrets that don't belong?
This loneliness has no place with us
The silence grows, it has no place with life.

Your outward joy holds back the fears
Which deepen inside of us.

We travel all alone
And carry the guilt of those who disappear.

Our childlike hopes
In disarray
This pain no child should feel
We disappear.
