Hour Eight

Red Queen

Man always wants to play God
some people barely scrape by
while others sit on their thrones
thrones made of those beneath them

There are few who have power
and do not abuse it
you are no better than anyone else
if you do not use your power for good

The wealthy do not believe in rags-to-riches stories
either you are from them or you are not
therefore, you must play the part
even if it means forgetting who you were

Love is not always two-sided
the boy you thought was good
may just be bad
anyone can betray anyone

-The last line is taken from Red Queen, by Victoria Aveyard
