Cheated

for a moment
i stopped and thought
that the moment i've been waiting for has finally come
but days,months and three years passed
that i came to realise
that my mind played me
i was still alone
and trapped in a maze
no real friends
and no one to trust
just alone
shedding those quiet tears
i used to shed before i went to kiwira.

    I like this poem, I am able to relate in a matter of speaking. I could feel your your hope build to be let down.
