We are the violent.

The spoiled.

The trapped,

and the lonely.

Our only defense is kindness.

Our battle wounds come from violence,

neglect,

sexual abuse,

starvation,

and being trapped.

We are a family of four.

A cat,

a dog,

a parrot,

and a girl.

Our story is way too familiar.

We have just one another to account for.

Our little twisted circle.
