Fraud, 2012
V. Ortiz Vazquez

Fraudulent the given path
Trail lined with nature’s flowers
Petals mark the areas to be follow
Thorns mitigated
To move forward through the given path
Written by her hands, she continues her journey

Steps by steps, moving forward
No contemplation of the past
Nor any reasons to cheat and foresee the future
Near or not
She continues her journey

Surreal, the feelings inside
An impostor waiting to be caught
Not knowing her next move
Driven by the idea of more
Back roads non existent
She continues her journey

Trick or treat no other choice
Thorns begin to grow
Vines loop forming an arc
To slouch, no other escape
Continue ahead only choice
Her journey await

Dismantling, broken road waits ahead
Uncertain, not knowing herself
Her ways
Her wants
Desires
She continues her journey
Feeling like an impostor
Fraud
When would she become her own self
Without those moments
Seclusion once again
As she continues her journey

Fraudulent the given path
Trail lined with nature’s flowers
Petals mark the areas to be follow
Thorns mitigated
To move forward through the given path
Written by her hands, she continues her journey

Walk the line without questions
Question without expectations
Expect with disappointments
Leap through broken paths
Turn around, retreat
Descend upon the unknown areas
Fraudulent the given path
Fraud to give upon temptations
Not to shed the forever  long mask
Given with birth
She continues her journey
