Nepotism

By Lumiere, published on Jan 3, 2014

...

reconstructive surgery makes skin look less weathered

by storms of failed relationships

wrinkle free skin hides the scars of my sin

unhappiness covered by awards of accomplishment

giving my love to a men who abuse and mis-use me

teaching by example bad relationship patterns,
