    Another day comes,
    Another day does pass
    Aggravation and trials
    Daily they kick your a*s
    Will you ever stop being blamed?
    Will you ever stop being harassed?
    Will you stop taking the blows
    From every stone that’s cast?
    Will you ever be the man overlooked?
    The man they pass blame to last?
    Will you ever not be the bad guy?
    You know that’s what you’re pictured as
    Will anyone see your present, your future?
    Or will they still dwell on your past?
    Will anyone recognize your success?
    All the good things you have?
    Because, they don’t to your dismay
    My friend, it is genuinely sad
    You could feel dejected, be indignant
    Perhaps, be intolerably mad
    But you, being the man you are
    You look at it all and just laugh
    Thinking, “ maybe, ‘The Bad Guy’,
    Is the role in their lives I must have”

    These flames ran through nations like trains out of transportation all fright
    Leaving destruction and devastation, productions and revelation in railroads like
    A fail load of explosives carried by locomotives at night
    This domination is like an accommodation on a 747 flight
    It rise then flies and skies so buckle seatbelts as this reach heaven’s height

    Yes, it does seem like some just get labeled the whipping boy, sometimes our race as a whole gets that label. Like the way you posed this.
