Lower your voice please

I can hear you fine

what you said

is ringing in my mind.


There's no need to yell

accusing me is wrong

I didn't do anything

and I'm not that strong.


Arguing won't solve

anything right now

so why do we fight

you yell as I frown.


Pointing the finger at me

and I'm not the one

but the words and actions that pour out of your body

are already done.


You say "look me in the eye

and tell me the truth"

but there isn't any point

no one believe the youth.


Sorry doesn't cut it

no, not anymore

please be calm

before I walk out of this door.
