"Hopes are like hair ornaments. Girls want to wear too many of them. When they become old women they look foolish wearing even one." -Mameha-san

I sit here completely lost.
I was sent here against my will,
Sent to this lonely jungle
Sent to this unending Hell
Sent to lose myself.

I burned my card the day I opened the envelope and
I burned an innocent village down today.
I was burned by my government,
and burned by my father’s pride,
and burned by my mother’s fear.

I hate killing the innocent.
I hate carrying this gun, going to fight, always numbed by drugs.
Hate consumes my once peace loving mind.
Hate strengthens my love to protest.
Hate made me a war pig.
Hate destroyed me.
