The Pain

He bathes in misery
He eats it for breakfast,
And washes it down with insecurity.

He speaks joylessness
And prays in doubt.
He walks in self righteousness
And dresses in selfishness.
The facade he presents daily
Devours him nightly.
His dreams are torturous and angry,
He wakes up with despair on his breath.
And starts his day once again in pain.
