What YOU Say…

what YOU say, that you want from me
is what You just can’t return.
what YOU say that you need from me
is what you always spurn.

what YOU say that you’ve done for me
is something you won’t take.
what YOU say that is “Best” for me
the degree past which you’ll break.

what YOU say that you “like’ of me
is what makes you revolt.
what YOU cherish takes from me
the choice to fund the love I had
and, often, prayed to hold.

what YOU say that is “BEST” for me
is everything you can’t stand.
what YOU have others fighting for is what destroys
“THIS LAND…”
