Umbrella of Hate

Standing there
Tears streaming down my face
Holding up
A black umbrella
Emotions rolling off
My umbrella
Used to be white
But then it turned black
With all of the hate
People have towards me
Im trying to shield myself
From getting poured on
With hate
My umbrella is getting heavier
Every single moment
For it is just catching
Every emotion
I cant hold anymore of it
So I just collapse
Down on the floor
The umbrella
Rolls away from me
So all that hate
I was trying to get away from
Hit me in one swift move
I started to drown
For that umbrella of hate
That kept me safe for so long
Had finally collapsed
On my pained
Black heart
