If You Don't Believe Me

Do you think Iím cowardly,
For not wanting to fight any more?
Do you think Iím gutless,
For avoiding the anguishing shame I canít ignore?

Tell me and look me in the eye.
Iíll show you the pain if you donít believe me.

Do you think Iím fainthearted,
For hoping for the best for those around me?
Do you think Iím spineless,
For having a menacing fear of everything I see?

Tell me when you see the control die.
Iíll show you the agony if you donít believe me.

Do you think Iím wrong,
For being weak and unable to cope with this doubt?
Do you think Iím pathetic,
For hating how my life plays out?

Tell me when you see me cry.
Iíll show you the sorrow if you donít believe me.

Do you think Iím pitiful,
For not wanting the sore battles in my mind?
Do you think Iím contemptible,
For leaving my loved ones behind?

Tell me as you say goodbye.
Iíll show you the torture if you donít believe me.

Do you think itís fair, that even with the entire struggle,
You choose to judge me and think less of me?
