Convictions

Connections broke
As my mind begins to smoke.
Corruption taints my conscience
Morals lose their hold
As sin begins to take control.

Conniving I have become
Seeking some type of fake love
Just to be empowered is what I crave
The feeling is like a drug
It makes me crazed.

Condescending aura
No one deserves my respect
I only use to delve out neglect
In my body resides a void
My spirit gone long ago destroyed.
