Character Witness

You don't know me.
Like you've shown,
You are and can be.
Everything I do to do done,
Is not with a thought to impress...
Anyone.

You don't know me.
To believe my words expressed,
You can twist.
With a fitting your agenda.
To have others accept,
A definition you give is more correct.

You don't know me like that.
To convince to some...
And behind my back,
Me to be someone else.
You've created to distort the facts.

Character witness? !
Never call me to be yours anymore.
As if I've never heard your lies before.
Character witness? !
I could never dupe another,
Like you have done to me.
To know 'my' character you've assassinated,
Countless of times and purposely.

Character witness? !
Never call me to be yours anymore.
As if I've never heard your lies before.

You don't know me.
To believe my words expressed,
You can twist.
You do not know me not to notice this...
Using me as if I permit it,
Will never be for you a lasting benefit.

You don't know me like that.
To undermine my character.
With a belief your character to witness,
Isn't tainted with a stench attached.
And that is a fact,
I have come to know the smell of it too well.
