Forever will the oceans fill
While tears of The Forgotten doth spill.
Why does no one see?
Why does no one hear?
If thy do, thyne will is strong;
For those Forgotten do not hide in a crowded throng.

They march on, trying their damndest;
Yet, everything is overlooked, as if He commandeth:
"The Forgotten ye shall stay,
Try as you might, no one will see your full light!"
And light have they,
But the glimmer is kept away...

Lonely and cold,
But the fight never grows old:
For acceptance and truth,
And love from those who matter.
Nothing done is ever done good enough,
And the sting from that knowledge can never be shaken off.

"What will we do? What can we do?"
The Forgotten ask. And they'll try 'till they turn blue.
But nothing is good; not a thing is grand.
Nothing is ever accepted or enough;
Just when they think 'maybe, this time it'll be right?'
Truth and hate they receive in a hard bite.

But will The Forgotten ever be known?
Can their hard work be shown?
Nay, sadly, this musn't be;
For it is our misfortunate destiny.
Meek, dirty, tired, and lack of self reverence;
No completion shall see a good job relevence.
