A Skewed Version of Me!

The diary of a young girl 

Has usually stuff about giggles and chocolates 

Barbies and friendship woes

But mine had disgust and physical violence 

My detestation for my step parents 

And convoluted childhood days 

I grew up to be a seasoned hater

And later a rough crocheted adult 

With fragile temperaments and brittle aura

Who was a winner without a soul 

A chassis bereaved of emotions 

A denatured boss without a lead

My degenerative past

screwed up my future 

And my present stayed paralyzed 

As a skewed version of me.

I had ripened to believe in everything 

Except compassion and empathy

Family and reverence 

Relationships and faithfulness!

I believed in everything except LOVE!!
