Which is worse a gun or a thought?
You can dodge the bullet of a gun but your mind you can’t block?
Staring at walls with silence on your lips
Words that echo through your brain but appear on your skin in strips
You began to alter
Then you initiated your falter
Going above and beyond just to be a copy
A replica of society
If I could change one thing it would be the way you see yourself.
No more tears on the constant war field that takes place within oneself.
I don’t want to see you lead yourself down the path of self-destruction
The road that made you hate your perfect imperfections
The fake smiles, the self-hate, and the unending misery
The emotion filled nights that left your pillows wet, your thoughts askew and your mind weary
It’s too much pain for someone so young
It’s time to stop the words that once stung
You’re beautiful just the way you are, you’ll win this war
Whenever you feel like you’re sinking I’ll pull you up to shore
If I could change one thing it would be the way you see yourself
Because your beautiful is a beauty like no one else.
