They’ll Say You’re Scared

Maybe you wanna run away.
Maybe you think the river can hold you.

The pain’s here and it’s there, too.
Sometimes reality is simply not on your side.

Sometimes, they want you the most.
Sometimes, they ask you the most.
Sometimes, you beg them the least.

And that’s when they’ll say you’re scared, when you’re begging the least.
They’ll say you’re scared while handing over a shiny, sharp knife which you may use to pick your dirty teeth clean.

They will go, the things you needed, the things you wanted.
They will go on without you by their side.
It’s easy to explain in poetry because it’s true.

They’ll Say You’re Scared
