Imagine a world
Where there’s always a veil
And eggshells under your feet…
And you’re happy for a kindness no matter how small
“cause it’s that or nothing at all.
Imagine a world where you’ve been abused
But it’s nothing you can show
You’re told it’s your choice to stay,
But you’ve misplaced the strength to run away.
Imagine a world of paralizing doubt
Because now you’re duplicitous.
You plan to get out today
And tomorrow you’re resolved to endure
You used to know yourself
Now you’re not so sure.
Imagine a world of smothering control
Imagine a world of where you know what’s right
But everyday you have to fight
For the small acceptances of you…
