Malicious People

Malicious People

When I was just a your little girl 
I always had around me
was malicious people
always jealous of my beauty 
thy would go around town
talking all kinds of trash
they would call me names
just to make them feel good 
what a shame to casting all kinds of blames ,
When I had got older 
I was much stronger 
and I stood up for myself 
I started remembering all their names 
that had given me so much pains
but I never cast no hate their way 
because they had to see their own self in the mirror 
and face their own fears each and every day 
their old friends just linked together 
making all kinds of trouble in that old small town
but I never let them burst my bubble 
no way will I let them bring me down 
into their own shame of lies
I have my own life 
I've seen so many things that has given me 
darken dreams of pains you would never believe 
rains of sorrow that has no end
my life became so gray on that cold September day
by the time December made its way
I felt I was in a grave
I had lost my faith when it comes to love
I come to that old garden of pains
and that is where my heart stayed 
around me are falling leaves of memories 
that withered deep within my mind
this pain moved deeper and deeper in my heart
I felt I could no longer breath 
when I start to think about the loss of my loved ones
It became hard for me to move on in my life
but then I start to think about those malicious people
and I started to think 
where they in pain too ?
is that why they act the way they do .

It does take awhile to absorb and reason that malicious people are in pane, as we; it's part of the release and forgiveness that we experience. A very tough road with many difficult lessons does build character. This piece took me back in time. Now, we move forward again.
