Scorned

Disease before the cure
Doubt before you’re sure
Unlock your hidden vault
Admit when it’s your fault

Cause and effect
Thoughts to collect
Mumble your prayers
Hope someone cares

Unfair rules of the game
Choose obscurity or fame
Can’t have none or it all
Keep building your wall

Use your hoarse voice
To utter a soft rejoice
Stop keeping score
While asking for more.


A poem by Jason S. Sullivan, 09-12-20
