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
