Wiping my tears away, I feign my happiness to the cruel life cutters of the world Where hatred and jealousy rules and tears apart those that are close Happiness and joy are unknown; Light is sucked out of every piece of life Never is there peace or justice…Smiles turn into anguished cries The wicked feed on the fear and pathetic lives of the desperate Planting their evil in the minds of the weak until they are nothing More than just servants to shadow demons of this place A world of lies and horror… A world of pain and torture A world where the humble are trampled and forgotten Kindness is spat upon in the pursuit of power Lost in the darkness of pain Surround by the feeling of shame So long to the hope of ever breaking free I surrender my soul to the bitter end Without a goodbye to those that have surely forgotten me I slip away to the lightless depths of hell…

    This has much truth and it is truly a dark world. I know I've read these already, but they deserve a comment. Bitter end eh? Aye. Love it Always, Laura
