Stood by myself

it is sad


the house of horrors

forced to walk through


and will

are not legitimate

I am deeply troubled

this fight

working hard

never treated

not true

I am disappointed

the story

My story

My energy

every day

each and every day

a part of it

every day

Protect me

Vindicate me

The day to come
