    They tell me that a rose by any other name…Remains a rose
    Like how a story is the same story no matter how it's told
    And sin is still sin no matter how good it feels
    A diamond coated with tin is a diamond still
    True?

    The stars still shine Even if they aren't perceptible in the day light
    Similar to how the darkest of times show true character
    Deep night sheds light on them providing visibility
    We once were blind
    But now correctly
    Perceive.

    When darkness arrives all are seen for who they truly are
    Whether they are monstrous or beautiful works of art
    Each and every one of us is naked within the dark
    And all of us ashamed of whom we are
    Without fabrications
    Stripped.

    During sun drenched days faux virtue was shown
    In the dark we realized our imperfections
    True colors were to all of us known
    Faults harshly brought back
    To our recollections
    All of us truly
    Exposed!

    Some picked up the pieces of their shattered spirits and rebuilt
    Back when darkness rained down on each our souls
    Some went with their naivety un-molested and safe
    Some cried inside, and on the exterior lied
    Some simply
    Died.

    The naïve ones were either lucky the night passed over them
    In denial of what they saw in the dark, or
    So blind they never saw the night come
    They never learned what I now know
    Lies hide truth but can't erase it
    Regardless of all your pretense
    Deep down you KNOW
    You are who you are
    Who you really are
    Realize.

    A rose by any other name, regardless,
    Remains a rose and please believe,
    The same goes for
    Weeds.
