I was born in a land
of hatred and regret.
In a land where you’re
either too happy or too sad.

In a land where suicide
runs through children’s minds
twenty four hours,
seven days a week.

In a land where
cigarettes are sold to kids,
where alcohol ran through
their veins.
Where weed was inhaled
and exhaled.

In a land where
first kisses no longer
filled the void.
Where girls sold themselves
for free.
Where social media,
stole their bodies.

I was born in a land
where innocence
no longer existed.
