????????????????????????????????????

Paying the price

Paying the price

Let us not be fooled
In believing that
At the end of every rainbow
Is a pot of gold.

Behind every smile
is a silent tear
Behind hope
Lies disappointment

With trust
Comes betrayal
With love
Comes heartache

Hunger turns to starvation
People turn into vampires
Feeding on the vulnerable
Leaving them to bleed

With every breath we take
We risk suffocating
With every heartbeat
A reminder of one beat closer to death.

Humankind
Rulers of violence
Deceit
Heartache ..

Life
Itself
The highest price to pay.
