Not Your FaultThose words that stumbleAs they're shoved down your throat,They already shred your body;You don't need to do it too...For every reason they spill their poisonsInto your very own heart andEvery self-conscious palate on your body;It's not your fault.They give you enough pain as is,Numbing it with pain against painIs only going allow the words to shred more -Don't give in to their game, they're killing youAnd making everything look like your fault.
