Stick Figure


Your constitution is so strong
That’s the reason you’ve lived so long
Despite all you’ve done
To yourself for all these years

What’s your motivation?
Who can tell?
It’s all logical when your life is hell
Sometimes I understand
But I hate it anyway.

I search in vain
For words that might help
I turn my back
And hate the weakness in myself
But I don’t know if I can take another tragedy.

You cut through so much pretense
With your brilliant mind
But when you see yourself
You can be so blind
You’re so thin
It’s really frightening
But you’re still beautiful to me.

You can’t deal with someone loving you
Guess that’s your tough luck, dear
I still do
You do your best
I fear the worst
But you’re too good to throw away

You try and you try
But you will not disappear.
