Something instead of nothing,
Cursed instead of peaceful.
Thoughts of death comfort,
Quelling the turmoil as temporary.
Punished into existence,
Punching bag for the powerful.
Honor what’s been given without request,
Kiss the hand that beats you.
Can’t reach the gods to kill them,
Forbidden fruit of vengeance.
Scream loud enough so they hear,
I never asked for any of this.
