You Crossed the Line

They called you ugly
But that was fine
You drew a line they could not cross

One that was red across your arm
And proved that only you could do you harm

They called you dumb
But that was fine
You drew a new line they could not cross

One that was red across your arm
And proved that only you could do you harm

They pushed you down
And that was fine
You drew another line they could not cross

One that was red and straight and long
And proved to you that you were strong

They laughed at you
And that was fine
You drew a line you hoped they could not cross

One that was red and straight and long
And proved to you that you were strong

That called you nothing
And it seemed fine
You drew a line only you could cross

One that was deep and red as wine
For the final time
You crossed the line
