Show me beauty and I will hide from its glare,
Its judgement on my imperfections.
Show me truth and I will cry inside
At the truth I am forced to bear
Show me compassion and I will break apart,
Shattered by the need for help.
Show me love and I will turn away
To protect my barely beating heart.
Show me pain and I will hold my head up high,
This I know how to endure.
Show me injustice and I will let out a warrior's cry
This battle is mine to fight.
Show me strength and I will hide from it too
For I fear I have lost my own.
Show me weakness and I will comfort and help
For it is all I remember to do.
Show me life and I will fear what will be,
Knowing that life consists of pain.
Show me death and a smile is born
For I am prepared for the end of me.
