Self Portrait

Innocence was overturned

Jealousy and bitterness

Now wore the crown

And ruled this kingdom

And her friends started to tell

Of the horrible thing she had become

Rocked like a ship in a storm

She gazed around at the portraits

Of her love, and her kindness

The fierce loyalty, her supposed intelligence

She roared as she tore them down around her

And wept

For the beast in a cage

She has trapped inside her

Had become her
