    for years
    i cried tears
    unjust treatment
    my battle, my scars, my wounds
    such a victim
    in my self flagellation
    libations
    seeking justification
    bound by vows
    and facing the lie
    yearning for my freedom
    the freedom of this tyranny
    subjection
    each and every rejection
    an open book...look
    see the cross that i bear
    do you even care...
    listen to the pain that i share
    stepping back
    forget all that
    look at things from the begining
    being right
    doesn't mean you're winning
    just because you can win a case
    things laced
    contradiction...demonize
    realize...it takes two to create
    any disparagy...apathy...reality
    so now i look
    and i see you anew
    sans issues and summons of trial and jury
    but with value and things true
    let's do this...me and you
    and never let anything come
    between the two
    cause we are all flawed
    prove me wrong please
    but finally i put down my weapons
    and admit to myself you're what i need

    I liked the subject matter in this one. We have to get over ourselves to move on, and live life and accept love. But it is very hard. Good write.

    OKAY, you sure know how to put it down, battle scars and all. You certainly have a way with words...
