When you look at me and laugh, do laugh, but don't be scared

Even though when you come closer you'll notice that my teeth may be bared

Why must you torment me with your words, thoughts, and actions

I guess this is 2008's way of gaining such satisfaction

You look at me and dare me to react

Through experiences beyond my control I know that for a fact

But when I do react, it's just a big game to you

And when things get out of hand you're ready to throw your hands up and say "do you"

When that happens, I'll prepare myself for the fight of my life

Because in the end if I don't make it, well just remember me by my daily strife

I really do have to learn to controll my anger

Rather than exploding and putting inocent people in danger

I hold no grudges or resentment against those who wronged me

All I ask is that when you see me to just leave me be

Those who wrong others will have to face the day

When the tables are turned and they will have to pay
