Poems From My Teenage Self (Pt 5): ‘Hypocrisy’

There are too many problems

in the world today

To analyze all the how’s & whys

When inside you struggle

to discover the truth behind the tears & lies

We try to make the world a better place

but it’s the problems inside of us

that we must face.

(Dated October 13, 1990 – so I was 17, about to turn 18 on November 6) I remember the despair I felt at that age, living in a ‘war zone.’ My father left us when I was 10, my brother 6; & my mother & I, oil & water, were at each other’s throats constantly.20180621_215538.png
