INSIDE MY HEAD
Through the wired mesh I see,
Through the thick veil that surrounds me.
A world beyond of which I dream.
A world in which only men can live.
An evil lurks beyond,
Ready to pounce, ready to devour,
Ready to kill
At my single move.
Are these the monsters I created?
Or is it just me?
Or is it the way it is supposed to be?
Nine months I bore,
Only later to be kicked on the face.
Can’t believe the monster he became,
The tiny fingers that once held many hand.
But sometimes, as I gaze at my tiny son’s face,
Pure and untouched, his love for me,
Sometimes I wish he stays like that,
Innocent and fair, his care for me.
And before the world could change him,
Sometimes I wish he dies like that.
