I am what I am,
Your names won’t change that.
Call me what you want,
The truth will remain unscathed.
They look at me instead of you
But I didn’t ask them to
Yet you justify their heated stares
With icy glares
And harsh words.
All aimed at me.
You don’t know me
Yet you don’t try to
But I don’t blame you
Neither should you
We’re all innocent in some way
And this is yours; don’t lose it.
Stay away from the liars and the bastards
They’re all after you
They’ll take from you what they did me
As their hunger and want sprout into never ending trees.
It’s all just a quick suck and fuck
And I’m discarded like last night’s leftovers.
But you couldn’t know that,
Surrounded by your perfect world.
Too bubbled in the protective cover
To try to look around and discover
That the world isn’t what it seems
I learnt that the hard way.
So I am what I am
Your looks won’t change that.
But this is how I cope
I refuse to sit around and hope
For that Knight you all want
It isn’t real and will never be.
Steam filled in cars
Red lips smacked at bars
One, two, three, four…
I may have just taken what was yours
I’m not sorry, why should I be?
After all I am what I am.
Welcome to reality.
