Deliverance Wand in Their Hands
an acquired personality trait
lingered, a victim mentality ruled
full of despair, they loathed, dreaded it
what if the other candidate was evil too?
what if someone said they had self-hate?
what if someone said they were complicit?
they feared possible unpleasant occurrences
after having languished in bondage for forty years
they had lost trust, the spectre of brutality and bungling
haunted them, convinced them, their life was a nightmare
they were their own victims as well as their own emancipators
