Suffering and smiling.

She wasn’t rich,

she needed help

everyone knew that

she claimed to be okay

she is a proud woman

a woman of no values

the only reason why she has a hunchback is because of her bad walking steps

she raises her shoulders high and walks with her invisible crown

she couldn’t even feed well

she couldn’t afford to buy a diaper for her son

and she claims to have a duplex with a lot of cars

rumor has it that she had divorced her husband

she is always badly dressed

a savage but stupid person

A barbaric woman who lives in a room apartment with her mother and claims she has —–,

you know what I’m talking about,

I pray she realizes one day that she is suffering and smiling.
