Like you would the pages of a book
You judge me like you judge books
You hate books
I don't even think you can read
They say you can't judge a book by its cover
You judge it because it's a book
And don't give it a second chance after that
You don't bother to actually look to see what's on the inside

To have all my pages tainted with rainbows
And to have my cover black and blue and bruised

While mom buried daughter in a time of long sorrow,
No one felt right with the grief of tomorrow.
Her birth was still cherished when the days reached to hundreds.
A niece shed tears for an aunt she'd not met.
A child's dear mother felt the grip of the pain
Blood drenched tears hidden by blame.
Stay strong, little one your mother is safe.
But twice she must battle to reach her kind fate
In a family of many, two sons had been wed
Both would be tested, with sickness or death
