Who are you to say that the way I liveÂ
Lessens my value
When my life was a gift that you did not give
A gift that I have not learned to appreciate or decided if I even want!Â
This addiction of mine
Trapped and confined
I still deserve
Even as I lift this liquor to my lips
I travel the road of my heart with little sips
Iâ€™m still worthy of simple human compassion
And my tendency to self destruct
Doesnâ€™t negate the fact that my
My value is non negotiable.
You can unloadÂ
Because I will understand:Â
Your struggle doesnâ€™t make you any less of a man.
