I Am My Only Enemy

It starts with comment about the way you dress
It follows up in the gossip columns of the school press
The next day it’s too late to recognise
The rumors have broken all your friendship ties
The knives pierce through your veins
Making you think of ways to change
How can you keep chaste
When you’re so sick of that melancholy taste
All until the time you realise
The mirror was tainted with their lies
So foolish to fill my life
With wasted tears when it was all just fine
I Guess I should’ve listened to the voice inside
Yet so hard when your mind is occupied
So yes, it all started with you but ended with me
Just because I couldn’t find and see
The reality
The real me
