A distorted reality wanted to play,
Since a worldly mentality had stolen me away.
In my misery of misunderstood shame,
I became overwhelmed with all the pain.
And life took advantage of that sweet scent of vulnerability,
Capturing me in confusion without any pity,
Like cheap perfume it lingered around,
Trying hard to hide Truth so it would never be found.
That life abandoned me, leaving a scar,
It always said I would never go very far.
Everything about myself I really hated,
But when I died a new me was created.
A choice revealed the depth of love and compassion,
Meant life for me would now be my passion.
To the lie of darkness, I slammed the door,
As I promised to never enter there anymore.
