White lies and cracked rules.
I let them build telling myself they aren't too big of a deal,
they won't catch up to me.
Saying I should just let something's slide,
they didn't mean it, I just need to let it go.
I let these things attach to me,
unaware of their first bite.
It isn't until they have gorged themselves on my mental state that I finally feel their weight.
They take my patience and humility
Leaving me with bitterness and shame
Like a bloated tick on a dog, I'm in desperate need of their removal.
So, great physician hear my plea.
Come uproot these things from the garden of my soul.
Set a blaze that which should not be, and purify my mentality.
Allow me to get close to you, to understand all you do.
