Harsh Transactions

In this business minded world, money is a must.

She will sell herself for someone else’s lust,

And so, will lose herself in a thousand little lies.

Life is not so rosy when seen by jaded eyes.

In time, her soul is lost  to betrayal and mistrust,

And in this vile process, her wounded spirit dies.
