The world has devoured you already,
The pain so easily read upon your face,
And no one knows that you occupy space
Your breathing is all but steady.
Your heart is broken, am I already too late?
Am I too slow to win this race?
Your broken heart I will not encase,
Nor can I leave you in such a state.
Open your eyes and try to find,
But beware the danger that before you lies,
The world’s claws that they do bind,
That are amongst the evil that here doth live
That steals away the virtue of the youth,
And that longeth to dine on such an innocent mind.

The author's comments:
Everyday I wake up and I am broken.
