Am I You?

I
Strive,
Survive,
Redeem
My place
In this world.
But
To what end?

I’m hated,
Fated
To know
What is thought
Of me,
Lies, truths,
Mistrust,
Manipulation.

Irreversible damage,
Sometimes
Caused by my own hand,
Usually by another,
Stains
The worn paths
Of my existence,
Yet here i am!

Denial
Of sacred
Minds,
Desolate
I stand,
Tear me in two,
Without me
Am I you?
