INJECTED AND REJECTED
She taught me well my woman of all those years. trust loyality and respect
are now being injected threw the eye of a needle filled with deceipt,
all of which are designed to manipulate and controll.
Seemingly I now stand alone in a cloud of misdirection. Old familur paths lead
only back to where I stand now. There are some who have reached out to me
and I have taken their hand but I soon let go
for I am unsure and I stand alone.
What was once a dream come true turned into a nightmare of a lifetime.
Answers once obtainable now escape me and awaken in silent screams
I am detached.
Love honer and respect seem nothing more than contrived distortions of truth.
As i mark the time within my mind
I am now a stranger in this land.
