Beauty and Injustice
Ruby red lips torn apart by hatred and lust,
Skin white as snow, tainted with the poisons of the world.
Is there no one to hear her cries?
She is in anguish.
I can see her sitting in the corner
Broken down by tears-
It’s reflected in her eyes.
She would never let the world in
To see her pain.
Such beauty, disheveled by the world.
Such innocence, polluted by humanity.
She wants salvation-
To be free-
Though she’s too proud to ask.
She holds her head high,
Displaying shadows of a broken past.
Twisted shadows follow her
Down the long, forsaken hall.
What a sweet, loving child
Taught to fear everything around her.
Beauty grows up in the bleak city
The laughter that once rolled from her lips
Has fled and flown away.
A dead father.
A drunken mother.
Where to turn?
Beauty walks down the decaying streets of the city
Lighting up the store windows along the way,
While the city contaminates her heart
With lies and cheap liquor.
