Hunger pangs and unofficial plans plagued his life each day
A lonely, disheartened mill worker who did not want to stay
Was he destined to be miserable, not knowing who he was
Could things be turned around as he worked for his cause?
Sleepless nights and daily frights haunted John’s troubled mind
Where was the part of his soul that he desperately needed to find?
Was there someone who could save him and had he met them yet?
Or was this him, was that it. Had his life path already been set?
