Do you wonder why he blames you
for the music you play, as if you
have the power to silence others
from hearing your songs?
Do you wonder why he blames you for
the light that you cast, as if you
can make others blind?
Do you wonder why he wants you to
blanket yourself, mute your voice,
hide your smile, and curse your laugh?
It’s because he hates how much you shine!
