What’s Wrong with You?


Elderly pairs bonded by a ring
Stressful disciplines in the past
Made the heart struggle to sing
What if he asked you that question?
Rage and anger accusations of disrespect
When he thought it was just a broad statement
Singing louder will never get your pin proven
The fire will rise and bridges will be burned
What if he asked you that question?
He seem to be different from the other two
Though disciplines weren't as strong with them
He's the different one from past beatings
He's the same one because of blood
He'll never be the same from the verbal abuse
Explored outside the blood to find love
What if she asked you that question?
Family isn't at the top of his list
But his sister is
His white brother might as well be blood
Because he loves him and understands him
But his family don't ever seem to
Stern words from his father locks into his head
Eats him alive until he finds a key
He never knew that key would be
Independence
