Hundred Million Pieces

Marion Souma 1983 (Pretoria)



Hundred Million pieces she's shattered
She believed them, felt flattered
She thought like blood she can trust
What was birthed was now black burned crust.

It's deceit, darkness, lies ending her
Betrayal typed on her stone, her demise
Hundred Million pieces of who they once were.

Losing this
Losing that
No more bliss
Everything's crap.

Empty mind,
Her empty heart
She's gone nobody can find
Hundred Million pieces without a solid part.

Lost she is
Unfound she stays
Silent disappearances
Nothing left of her ways.

Empty space
Nobody cares
Scattered in pain She's out of grace
Hundred Million pieces in broken tears.
