"Teresa's life"

Teresa went to do shopping
medicine had wasted her.
Half a whim and half a smile
she was desperate inside.

Teresa said she didn’t care
her life was hanging by a thread
betrayed by a lost generation
and a lover who abandoned her.

Teresa went to do shopping
hoping to see the sun.
She wouldn’t listen to the words
of a young man who didn’t know love.

Teresa talked like a child
and made her father cry.
Her mother tried to talk to her
but she drank and stepped a side.

Teresa went to do shopping
begging for attention.
Feeling lonely all the time
even when she had to pay.

Teresa forgotten by the world
Teresa’s life was a lie
