Confessions of the Intolerable

Impotent to mourn the losses
isolated child in despair
in solitude and unprotected
inhumaneness, unable to bear

Defenceless in adolescence
unwarranted intrusions, reprehensible
personal advantages always seized
motivations incomprehensible

Braving subsequent traumas
deprivation of careless youth
grieving dramatic demise
alone aside the harrowing truth

Profound erudition of means of survival
vast the promising avenues of escape
shameful moments are unrepented
buried deeply, never to undrape

Adorning masks in drunkenness
consuming toxins to feel unhurt
retreating from abhorrent deeds
presence apathetic and inert
