Betrayal


I left and never missed home,
Anger forced me to be all alone
In a desert brimful of pain.

I cried a lake full,
And even wished I would die,
This young and youthful
Or never had been born.

Every time I wondered why
He had to make me cry,
And never felt shy.

I wished she would be near,
To witness how her half
Betrays her innocent I.
Lovely sweet mama.
