I may have acted blind
and I may have acted mute
but I was not stupid
and I was not deaf
I did not act as I should
I acted as taught
there is a difference between
knowing wrong
being taught, wrong
and lies
the difference is
the destruction of innocence
what you knew going up in flames
the bitter taste of realization
along with the drowning sense
of insecurity
and loneliness
but none of that ever really leaves you
does it
making a mark of misery
and a tack of victory
for the enemy
for destroying a person
capable of being much better
capable of so much
but locked in the enemy's box
and that is why
people and the world
are so broken

The End
