To Walk Into Hell

Beautiful soul,
You washed yourself in dirt and shame
To hide the pain, the scars, the burdens.
You laughed when you
Were supposed to cry.
You couldn't beat them
So you joined them,
Gave into the abuse and hate
Made yourself in their image,
And then became the master
Not the slave.
All avenues of degradation,
Dehumanised till unrecognised.
And now, they turn away from you
Frightened of the rage and hate,
Abused by the depths 
Of your destruction.
Where power lay in the hands
Of one so great, so beautiful,
Corruption has become the vein of joy
Shattered by illusions
By lies and deceptions
Foul manipulation of your perceptions
You have turned away from the road
To walk into hell
Smiling and laughing as though 
You have won
Yet when you look around
You are alone.
