If I used logic. I would still be called a fool;
For logic will not purge the minds of resolute belief.
You’ll always think me: “fool”.
If I used emotion to try and reach your heart,
You’d only dismiss it as ‘irrational sentiment’,
And spurn my bleeding heart.
If I told the truth. If I told you what I know.
You’d remind me that truth is unreliable when it,…
Occurred so long ago.
If I swore on my life, that I know and speak the truth.
You’d still deny my pleading words. No matter what I said,
You’d still require proof.
If I stepped off a cliff and waved to you goodbye,
Would you finally listen to what you refuse to hear?
To be heard, must we die?
If I apologized for my life and my soul,
Would you continue to blame me until the utter end,
And still forsake my soul?
If you don’t yet know this, then let me please explain.
Invalidation kills the soul and digs an early grave,
And there the stone reads bitterly:
“This life was naught but vain”.
