How I feel about myself.
Society’s Blight

Look into my eyes and see my pain,
a blight on society, a being of shame.

Look into my heart and feel my hurt,
lies to cast me down, leave me shunned.

Look into my soul and hear my voice,
silenced by those who want no truth.

What was once held sacred now defiled,
thrown away like trash, heaped in yesterday’s trials.

There is no saving grace, not for me anyhow,
too much discarded already, never to return.

Look into my eyes and see my pain,
never anything more than a blight on society.
