Day 165 – Kindness

They say kindness is the best beauty regimen
I guess it’s working out for me now
but I didn’t give up my fire to be wanted and clean
I scratched up my face to figure out how
it was never my fault I was haunted and mean
and the dogs smell my fresh bruises
and they come back to lick my old wounds
and the things I’ve learned, I keep to myself
but I can lie so dangerously now
