She thought back on her life

And realized in horror

That she had caused so much destruction

She could name at least a hundred

Who had been hurt by her actions

She wanted to ease and comfort

But for her to do that would mean

For her to lose a part of herself

And for it to die

Because she would have to stop living the lie

All her life, she was constructing the lie

To protect herself from getting hurt

From someone who had wanted to get revenge

She wanted to stop living the lie

To break out of her bubble, to live free

She took the matter into her own hands

And sacrificed her life for the sake of others.
