she walked on their soil.
felt the gravel on the ground ,
every bone heavy with anticipation.
waiting for the show bell to sound ,not knowing that's exactly what it was
My dear Hampton I salute thee.
she had her heart in her hands ready to give it all never wanting to look back ,
because that's how she survived .
yet that would also be her cause to fall
stuck in a bubble of confusion ,rejection ,deception
you fooled her twice while playing nice to the outside folk .
Interpreting her dream only then to go back on your promises when mama left the scene
now she's completely alone
or so it seems,
suffocating on the lies that float through your air.
She was the picture of perfection
now shes tongue tied trying to make a paper smile look real seared at the edges pinned down with the broken glass that once covered her eyes
But now she can see,
that you weren't true to your word.
her mind races .
with the unknown
Her heart beats unevenly as she dives past her regrets .
What did she even see in you,
What did I ever see in you !
You where family and freedom
You were redemption repentance
You where the future .
Yet now your darkness and despair,
And I can't seem to hold onto my sanity
So what's to be made of this tale of woe .
Do I stay shackled in the unkept,
Weep away my sleepless nights .
Or do I fly high
And take my chances .
