His words sliced through me

Like the blade of a knife

They pillaged my confidence

But ironically taught me to fight

Once powerful and veral

Now a cowering fool

His example was shameless

So I broke all the rules

He lost my respect

my heart raged with contempt

I could easily return the favor

now that our places have switched

But our blood is where I end it

Because I'm not like him
