Amnesty

Was born innocently
Corrupted quickly
In a corrupt family
Drugs
Alcohol
Lies, abuse
Cheating and violence
Covered up with (silence)
This is what I digested
“You are what you eat”
No surprise at what was manifested
Attempting to purge it everyday

Broken
With a mask that said I had it together
But inside unraveling
Emotions as unpredictable as the weather
Skin as tough a leather
Protection=self-preservation
Self hatred
Low self esteem

unable to properly express
unable to process
I made a multitude of mistakes
hurt myself and others

Now
as I am working on myself
still making mistakes
I asked for forgiveness
have been forgave
and in this chaos
of correction and healing myself and the wounds I caused
I seek Amnesty
