Lust: you snatched away my truth
my honesty and my family,
you knew my weakness
you used it to destroy me.
You made me mad
and you took control of my body and mind
I drowned in the need of money and power
in love, you made me blind.
You think you are powerful
and trust me, you are
you think you are deadly
you know you’re capable of leaving unwanted scars.
You managed to silence the good
but you won’t defeat it so fast
you might want to know the truth
and the truth says that you won’t last.
(First poem in a series of seven)
Hi! I am a 12 year old currently studying in the Netherlands. For 5 years, I was studying in London and moved to India for some time in July 2019. First of all, I love playing the western flute and have been playing for quite a few years now. Playing and also, listening to music is definitely my passion. Some sports I enjoy playing are badminton, netball, swimming, football, cricket (these are the top 5!). Ok, so let’s talk about poetry. I wrote my first poem in primary school in England and this inspired me to start writing poems on WordPress. Some of my recent poems are about global issues such as climate change, depression, bullying etc. Writing poetry is another passion of mine…so, check out my poems on WordPress. I don’t know what else I could say here so, hope you love my poems…..happy reading!!
