For Far Too Long
You think your words can wound my ever vibrant soul?
You think your actions can scar the porcelain I'm made of?
You believe so fully that I'm simply a marionette
Hanging by strings
Happy to abide
To your twisted views of merriment
Did you not once think I have a soul?
That I cannot feel your every stinging remark?
Like physical blows to my heart
I feel everything
I remember it all
And that's why after all these years
I can now stand before you
Head held high
I resurrected who I once was
To stand and fight for what I know
And seal the hole in my heart
All those lies and fabrication you convinced me as truth
Are now my shield of armor to reflect my inner light
All those superficial hypercritical views you said in the name of love
Are now my sword to destroy the darkness
I believed your fantastical voice for far too long
Your arrows dipped in poison penetrated me unnoticed
For far too long
Your meaningless words can no longer wound
