Life's Work by Orange
Lie to me and show me your truth,
curse at your friends, family, and lastly you,
for your inability to convey what's inside,
hate me and your colors show through
from your insecurities and intolerances created during youth,
weapons forged to keep away from you
anything you don't know, or understand,
and as a man no longer malleable and ready to take a stand
for your truth,
you would fight me rather than accept
that tools built for wars will only harm you,
to live for your wounds is to die by your scars.
