Prey On Your Weakness

Don't misstep,

Or else you will fall into the pit

Of nothing.


Don't dream,

For when you inevitably wake,

Dreams will die.


Don't lie.

If you do, they can tell, and they will

Exploit your words.


Don't learn.

Only a fool would dare to progress

When they watch.


Don't rot.

If you show weakness, they will take all

you have left.
