Unbecoming

Unbecoming I am tired of the bullshit; I am tired of the lies I am tired of denial; I am tired of fake smiles   My head remains unbowed; my back is still not broken I release the veil and the shroud, begin the unbecoming When everyone is winning, I deny defeat   You can... Continue Reading →
