Can you tolerate persecution for the choices you have made?
And still hold your head up high and never place a blame?
Can you conceal the mockery that differences will apply?
And become that bigger person that because of pride, we hide?
Can you look beyond the curtains that hold true reflections?
The masks people hide behind because they’ve lost direction
Can your heart still manage through scars that penetrate?
And will that love be as strong as it was yesterday?
Can you trust in promises that only benefit another?
Using charm as a tool to help deceive his brothers
Can you turn the other cheek and pretend it doesn’t hurt?
Fumbling in their ignorance is what they really deserve
Can you open up your mind to a world that’s not the same?
And finally accept the fact that things are going to change?
Can you see the beauty that is hidden in us all?
Or do you view life behind the cracks in the wall?
Can you over-come the battles that have only weighed you down?
Or will you become another victim that doesn’t make a sound?
Can you become the stronger one when life spits in your eye?
Or will you be the weaker one that conforms to the other side?
