Its a sad thing to learn that the person you love loves no one but himself.

You break my trust not once, but twice

And you tell me that if I cannot forgive

Then it is no problem of yours.

Do you know what kind of person says such words?

A person who is spoiled to the bone

Who looks in the mirror and sees himself standing

On the Highest mountain

When what is thought to be Mighty

Is actually cowardice and insecurity

When one push has you tumbling down

Into the abyss of your Truth.


Your Pride is a thing of pity

Your arrogance a stubborn thorn

Pricking those around you

Leaving you alone.

In the end you are nothing

But a child crying in a corner

A black heart with no cure.

An ugly thing full of scorn.
