Lost Found

Yet no one saw him for who he was. He was among them, but stood alone, unrecognized and lost - waiting to be found. You were a fighter and I was a writer There wasn’t much common ground You through the punches and I had the last word And that’s how our story went down We were lost Found Suddenly everything’s upside down We...
