Mayella (from to kill a mockingbird)

A young maiden desperate for desire

A cruel pathological liar

Deep down she's lost and afraid

Becoming the monster her dad made

No where to look no where to turn

Where's the love this young girl yearns?

Accusations to those who are innocent

Her sanity has become all twisted and bent

Is she the suspect or the victim

We are all lost in this world's system
