No one knows
they don’t care
what you are
or what you wear
as long as you’re you
that all that matters
if you relish in being an “other”
judgment shouldn’t matter.
we all know it does
it all how you see it
but if you don’t know or love you
the mask you wear
you’ll be it.
Trauma is like laundry
wash it according to the instructions
rinse cycle spins it clean
repeat as necessary
fold it up
wear it another day.
New shame, in vain
Dark and muddy like a beetle
This isn’t the new way, this is feeble.
I will never live up to my honor
But the lies are still lavish
I relish in things I can’t manage
Watch my back as I lash it.
Dictator in my own fit
Say mean things like I own it
Turn around and atone for slips
No way can I hone it.
Destroy lives with nice a twist.
just like picking a new outfit.
different things, I can’t resist.
Being my own enemy is a fun tryst.
It’s not the stares you get but the eyes you feel on you
just by watching he thinks knows you
she feels she knows you by your silence
and yet, they both wonder who you are.
I remember when I felt the creep eye of time watch me
as if it was waiting for me to pay attention
I never did
now, I can’t get its attention.
Everyone that claimed law was ready to rio
I had-I had 24,000 thousand reasons to hit the lick.
I just-I just found out rats will use their tricks
I got-I got one of these rats ready to sell out their own tips
I got, I had, I got the extermination on my hip.
Alright, it’s said I was born with the ending skills
My lawyers said i’ll walk when he shakes the deal.
I got a bad little plan so these rats can’t flip.
intimidating to the same eyes that police your tone
scared of your color
devoured your exitance for profit.
Use you, but don’t want your presences
too big, to scarry
too masculine and harried
Imtimdating to the ones that police your tone
yet demand you call them your own.

They hate when you smile,
your confidence is threatening.
You’re preferred to remain willowy like the past.
you’re defiant to nature that isn’t yours
You choose to walk tall.
You decide to be strong for you.
