Pick Your Own Poison

The world is kind to let you pick your own poison

Misery holds you underwater like an anchor

Courage seeps through our skin, burning us alive

Truth is a deadly pillow with a silver lining

 

Misery holds you underwater like an anchor

Beauty sucks out your soul and leaves you to die

Truth is a deadly pillow with a silver lining

Wisdom leaves you paralyzed, duct taped to the floor

 

Beauty sucks out your soul and leaves you to die

Kindness forces you to bend over backward and break your neck

Wisdom leaves you paralyzed, duct taped to the floor

Empathy breaks your heart then lets you stay and rot

 

Kindness forces you to bend over backward and break your neck

Courage seeps through our skin, burning us alive

Empathy breaks your heart then lets you stay and rot

The world is kind to let you pick your own poison

This poem is about: 
Our world
