mama's burning idealism MAG

i am a distorted version of what you wanted
a constant reminder of all your mistakes
i am the child that you flaunted
while shoving the monster further into its cage
i am the obvious imperfection
the flaw cloaked in lies
i am cursed with intelligence
that your minions despise
i am the locked door
i am the lost key
i am the broken mirror
the reflection that taunts me
i am the overdone
i am the unplanned
i am the ill conceived
i am the burning damned.
