Treasure Island

One Last Suicidal Prayer


Here I am now
with the reflection of a child,
crying

Wanting out of this prison
Caged in steel bars of judgement
and criticism

The pounding noise of a gavel
Manipulating my gullible ear drums
with degradation

A social rape victim
Lured by perverts with the false hope:
ACCEPTANCE

One last suicidal prayer
for the blessing of the deities of attention

    As it always is, the suicide note is not and cannot be answered.
    Superbly written. Quite engaging in its language. (Report) Reply
