What Am I?

by Beth Pauli
a prison sentence
a child hood
a sunrise
a horror
the comparison
the contrast of razor blades
and rose buds
in the eye of evil
there is no difference
in the mind of the young
there is no meaning
i am a picasso person
in his time
mutilated criticized
the result of a person's mind
combined with strokes of their hand
a sight to be heckled
talked about
laughed at
i am not priceless
no work of art
but the result of sick determination
in a tainted creature
the master piece of a maniac.
