Lacking in essence
Lusting in fear
These individuals are always readily near.

Consuming with criticism
Manipulating with melancholy
They want to drag you down through their own folly.

Soothing with sinister subtleties
Spiting life by spitting strife
Their own arrogant illusions run rife.

Let knowledge be your cheer
Let reason be your steer
Love yourself, be your own.

Honor the choices that lead you home.
