Corruption


We are all born beautiful and magnificent
you can look in to our eyes and see our innocence
Our Benevolent care free spirits
Our contagious smiles and laughter
Still unharmed by life’s disasters
Our uncorrupted souls not yet sold
Still waiting for the story of life to unfold

The nostalgia of the beginning, eclipsed with sinning
Products of our environment
Violence a requirement
Our defense mechanisms, our denial systems
our mental and physical wants
Influenced by the strife’s of life
Cutting through our hearts like the blade of a knife

Filled with emotion, overwhelming like the current of an ocean
Drowning in a sea of negativity
Before we sink, we begin to think
Engulfed in fear, death is near
We are forced to fade in to the darkness
Or look in the mirror
