Brutal Truth


You want the truth, no sugar coating


Every sordid tale


All the details no omissions


The story of a boy for sale


Teenage me, alone in the city


Starving, freezing cold


No empathy needed save your pity


Those days are decades old


I was raped so many times


Sold for sex every day


No God to witness all these crimes


Now you know why I don't pray


Truth be told I should be dead


The opiates I've used


Instead I relive inside my head


Every day I was abused
