The contempt devils your innocence,
Your code of honour is mysterious.
Does sleep come peacefully through?
Or do you beat your children too?
Fighting without humility is pain,
It shapes your life of non-existence.
Was the early world unfair to you?
Or did your father beat you too?
Accept your pain, take time to heal;
Come into a world that cares for you.
Will you ever find the love you crave?
Or just beat yourself to the grave?
