You Couldn't Handle

What if I showed you
Could you even process
The truth you would chew
My life you would try to bless

I would show you in pirvacy
You would scream it to the population
My tears I will choke silently
While I stand in humiliation

Why am I different
You can't handle the truth
You are just ignorant
My life you don't need to sleuth

I do what I want
I live my own life
Why do you taunt
I'm holding a knife

Why did you fight
My sadness grew
I'm leaving tonight
I'm too much for you
