Threshold of self

I was robbed, they took my life.
They did me anew,
I've had no way out.
I changed everything
But the world haunted me.
I felt cold, shivering,
And then I let myself go,
To sport by things that my mother,
He did not teach,
But the world doubled me.
I wanted to plasticize myself,
Change gender,
Being healed ...
And I left my home
I left those who loved me.
Today I'm here.
I was sentenced to nights
Cardboard My Blanket
The pain of my lifemate.
And I still screw up
I try to take life from the other,
For fool's gold.
I leave and invade what is not mine.
I've often been about to leave,
Many gave me their hand,
But what I did,
It was to hurt them.
And, today I live on the threshold of time,
Forgotten by who loved me,
Wanted by Law.
And, I know I did everything wrong.
Today I am guilty of ruin
That invades my soul.
And to live in pain eternally is my sinha.
Even if somewhere, someone by me will fight!
