Lost in Translation

Reading by the lines, one by one Evidenced on those skid marks left A bitter aftertaste, beyond goes the winding path right ahead What led this outrage, travesty? Swept sanity with tragedy O’er the hedge up to no man’s land Places that gets one out of hand A four letter word defined despair Others called it an outbreak, plague yet some being spared by a hair but most were left alone and vague It’s been a struggle upon death like life being bullied in the edge Such fairytale told in great length With no other cue when it’ll end Here goes below downward spiral Love just dragged you deep underground When all is lost, the outcome’s final, a broken heart you had just found There goes, “Damn you do, damn you don’t,” a double-bladed tongue swordplay waiting for a preemptive strike then suddenly, gave up the fight

Most of the time when you are in a very uptight situation, it will leave you speechless. No matter what you do, people do have a say on it. The funny thought is that we have all the reasons on the table yet we can't even voice it out because we were been intimidated from prejudices coming from them. Thanks, Kim... :)
