Enslaved

Adorned in black
a sad disguise
black polished nails
black circled eyes

body piercings all around
a post in tongue
one in the nose
ear studs neatly in a row

an entity in slavery
controlled by mediocrity
enveloped by a cloud
pretending to be proud

yet underneath the shroud
a tiny spark of hope
for around her fragile neck
she wears the sacred cross

she may deny its power
but God still hears her cry
she requires one who sees
the soul inside that needs.
