Poetry – Dignify


All my devotion betrayed
I am no longer afraid
I was too blinded to see
How much you’ve stolen from me

You want to know why I feel so horrified?
I’ve let my innocence die
You want to know why I can’t be pacified?
You made me bury something
I won’t be sleeping tonight

I only wanted a blessing made
Now I’ve been labelled a renegade
It seems so clear now what I must do
You’re no immortal
I won’t let them
Dignify you
They view you as the new messiah
Dignify you
Renew belief in some demented man

You want to know why it seems the passion’s died
We’ve all been living this lie
You want to know why my will’s been fortified
You’ve made me hunger again
Good luck sleeping tonight
