You Want Me To Acknowledge



You want me to acknowledge pain,
so I acknowledge pain.

You want me to acknowledge pleasure,
so I acknowledge pleasure.

You want me to acknowledge fear,
so I acknowledge fear.

You want me to acknowledge bravery,
so I acknowledge bravery.

You want me to acknowledge you,
so I do.

You want me to acknowledge
that you want me to acknowledge, so I do.

Now go away
and leave me alone.
