I am surrounded by lies, betrayal, greed and lust, fenced with poverty and sin. These coat the world that I see. It is cruel but fate have given me worse. It took away everything and everyone I can hold on to and placed them where I can’t find the comfort of blaming their absence. I have cried until even tears have left my eyes and as if it was not enough, when I was at my lowest, temptation came in forms of gold and chocolates. It taunted and teased me with its false warmth and security.
The truth behind my smile is tears.
The past behind my strength is pain.
