protect yourself

in the name of god
most gracious most merciful
you are not kind
and i am afraid
of people
who can extinguish the light in others
and carry that sin with them
as if they own the honey
that flows from your heart
oh resilient one
be mindful
the world is soft and cruel at the same time
protect yourself
cherish yourself

Sometimes we patch up our wounds
and so the only place we can bleed
Is from our mouths with our words
But what we forget is that with the blood
Comes fragments of the razors we were cut with
