Don'T Need A Pity To Pat

Wont be defeat to be the thing,
To disease me.
I've got to find a peace of mind,
To unthaw this freeze!

Wont be denial that I search,
To please my hunger.
Doing that like the rest...
Is tempting and too easy!

Wont be a hope I had and lost,
To drown in surrounding sorrows.
Wont be shallow whispers,
Others feed to boost their greed.

I'm going to do what it takes,
To get myself together!
If I have to face mistakes I've made,
Then I will for me!

Don't need a pity,
To pat and please my anger!
Don't need approval to wallow in my grief.
Don't need to weep my tears on soggy shoulders.
With the others who welcome me and misery!

Wont be defeat to be the thing,
To disease me.
I've got to find a peace of mind,
To unthaw from this freeze!

Wont be denial that I search,
To please my hunger.
Doing that like the rest...
Is tempting and too easy!

I'm going to do what it takes
To heal from these allergies!
So many cough up nothing...
But talk,
And that 'ain't me!
I'm going to do both walking and talk
To feel relieved.
And pity patting me on my back,
Wont do for me!
