Like You

I can grow higher, build my body stronger

I can fight you, beat your ego and shatter

I can spit words out, to tear you down

I can sink to your level, flick fear through your heart

I can use your pain, and hurt you more

I can witness your weakness; I can knock you to the floor

I can break you down to make you recognize humanity

Be inhumane, be like you

I can ruin your reputation; leave you with nothing

I can take you from what is important

I can do what you can do

Maybe even better

But I won't, because I don't want to be like you
