Deformity

-

In much respect of my brain's thoughts

My reflection in the mirror is retarded

The features of my face

Scared me to tears

How can I look like this?

It makes no sense

What's more, my heart is incapable

__of reacting to how I look

When I look at myself

One would suppose I would become

__depressed beyond the point

____of crying

But, instead

I am dumbfounded into numbness

A loss of feelings of my self-understanding

How the world has gone into a

__withdrawal from me

I won't get my revenge

On my genetical birth givers

'Cause, unfortunately

It will do no change

I will still look this way
