No man chooses evil because it is evil. He only mistakes it for the happiness, the good he seeks

Work Text:

I was left behind
Sorrow and grief was mine
No one ever mind
This lonely and dirty child

Never knew what kindness was
Nor this so-called warmth
Never knowing right and wrong
Just that I have to be strong

Growing hungry for days
Begging for some change
None ever spared
A single cursory stare

I could never understand
Why I was beaten to the ground
I just did what I was told
Why treat me so cold

Just a little treat
Not even a full stick
I just want some sweets
Can't I have it please?
