The Perverts

 

 

The mind

Left

A mark!

 

The mind

The mind

The mind

 

The desire

The lust

The perversion

 

The woman?

The man?

 

The MeToo#

The WeToo#

 

The accusations…

The defense…

 

Then…

 

Life…?

Death…?

Victory…?

Loss…?

 

The perverts

The ambitious

The shortcut

The road ahead…?

 

Where would you go?

AND WHY?

 

The mind

Left

A mark

 

YOU CANNOT ERASE!

 

Did you have

The right?

 

 

 

 

 

Rolling Time

 

 

Time has changed

Its story…

 

History they wanted

To rewrite…

 

Change…

 

But it kept on

Repeating itself…

 

Time changed

The story remained

 

UNFINISHED

 

The characters…

The faces…

The chronicler…

 

And YOU…

 

Time rolls on…
