Truth

Truth

Bounded to you by love
Separated from you by life
Young and foolish not able to see
To see, the truth that surrounds me

Pleasant playgrounds joyfully explored
Traitorous life foolishly ignored
Safe in your arms I felt nurtured
Pride in your eyes I felt accomplishment

Youth turning to independence
Innocence turning to experience
Ego ruling me, intoxicating my mind
Other people’s favours turning my own

The Beginning of my hatred begun
Your choice, my responsibility
Neglection I choose to squander
Help is not for me to give

Cowardness enclosing my mind
Wanted safety banished from me
Betrayed by your needed love
Loneliness is burden to me

Haunted by you presence
Desperate to ease your pain
Impatience becoming a constant friend
Resignation is all I abide

Despite is all I feel
Love lost in unforgettable pain
Ruined is my life
If this is truth, ignorance I advise

    Very well done narration of the transformation from naive, care-free, and innocent to betrayed, bitter, and hardened. Captures the progression of a life with craft.

    There's such an obvious innocence in all your words, only time can tell if it will disappear, as I have yet to decide whether it benefits your writing, or diminishes it's potential
