You have haunted me
Followed me wherever I went
It’s because of you …
People just can’t comprehend
That I am not those things
You always say I am
I’ve never been like that
Yet here we stand…
Face to face…
We can’t stand each other
You can’t seem to be stopped 
So I don’t even bother…
Trying so hard to evade it
It will always find its way to my ear
For as the wind guides you
Your horrid lies you share
But why do people listen…
Why do they bother to judge
Only if they would really know me
I don’t like to hold a grudge…
So I pardon them
Because they don’t know me for me
They don’t see what I truly am
What my real friends do see…
They see what they hear
Someone so evil, unkind
But they don’t know…
They don’t know what’s on my mind
The pain and loneliness I feel inside
 The guilt that has haunted me
But no more will I hide!
No more will I flee!!

I will no longer pay mind
To your lies and deceit
For only I know what I am
So consider this… defeat!!!
