A Poem by Project Mayhem

Double Meaning: 1. Not everyone is going to like you and you can't force them. It hurts but you will manage 2. Being around toxic people will definitely morph you into something you hate.

Don't understand
As for yourself
It's optional

Once more too much
Still icicles

You're what has been
Out through past lives
A numerous count
And you're the issue
I've lost empathy
On the way to nowhere
