Underestimated

You’ve been underestimated
Fiendishly reprobated
Ejected and reinstated
Tortured and complicated

They spit on your name
Bloody phlegm and eternal pain
They see your kindness as a ruse
They cannot trust for their karma’s due
They see your love as a knife
Waiting for you to take their life
You dodge their poison darts as you frown
These jackals must never bring you down

The world lines up to watch you fail
Their expectations growing frail
Lining up at your coffin with their nails
But you flew away without a trail

Show up, show your detractors something new
Win them over with your purging love
Turn the other cheek and take the hit
Turn on your flame and never quit
