Borderline (Jane)

She hit the borderline The day she finally crossed the line and spoke Without the hope That had her choked till now And swiftly to her head came All the comfort she'd been fed And she recalled just how she'd bled And how they'd watched her try Don't take me for a fool 'Cos I know the world is cruel Don't say it's OK All the good has gone away And innocence it was her fire For she believed that purity Was all that was required To live a better way But there was for us No place to hide For that same day A child died Two boys were charged and questioned why But they could not reply We fall and call and we carry it all Gathering on the way We reach and we teach and how we love to preach As long as our views can stay the same As long as they stay the same
