Look at the picture and you'll see
The emptiness in his eyes
A soul contained by misery
Look at the picture and you'll see
a family divided down the line
By betrayal and a warped psyche
Look at the picture and you'll see
Two brothers, one raised above the other
The father's disdain showing blatantly
Some cuts may heal
If time is changed
With a father's softness, he may learn to feel
But too many scars have formed to save the other half
Shielded by bitterness, she sneers in outrage
There is nothing that can replace family, except emptiness
