Defender of the Youth

Location

So you think that you are brave?

Hiding behind your words so foul

It could make a soul roll up and shatter

 

Better them than me?

But I don’t agree with them

Words so poised and cocked, loaded in an endless battle

 

What are trying to prove?

Power and might will make you up to be a better man

Yet you hide behind a screen, shielding your face like no man

 

GOT NO COURAGE

 NO STRENGTH

OR WISDOM

 

Hiding behind that façade

But listen

Who do you think you are?

To judge, to fight, to write

Whipping out those words

To hurt, to cry, to smite

Ripping apart a life

With no endless triffle

 

There is only one person who can judge

And that ain’t you

So put your words aside

There ain’t nothing to fight

You want a reason to judge

Just look at yourself in the mirror

And ask yourself

Who you think you are?
