A rhyming poem about struggling for power

I am covered in lies

A costume of regret

The ones I promised

Will never forget

 

I am not the brave warrior

The hero, the savior

Just a girl lost in the nothing

Society gave her

 

I am worth watching

But no one wants to see

A girl damned from the start

Will never be free

 

Why climb up with pride

When the world pushes you down

Better to pretend

And climb without a sound

 

Proper and worthy

Means a free ticket

Up the ladder of power

Higher than the wicked

 

And so I stand

Alone and afraid

Because the lies are isolating

And power is my cave
