What You’ve Taught Me

I’ve been involved in sick brutality
An apprentice to this world’s deprived humanity
Evil was the only lesson I’ve ever learnt

But you treated me like a person,
Looked deeper than my actions
My cruel nature didn’t repulse you

Instead, you took me into your garden and showed me the bees
We spent a whole golden afternoon watching their flight
For a few brief hours, I felt perfectly human

In all my life I’ve known nothing but brutality
But you have taught me the meaning of beauty
