To Those Who Talk Behind My Back

To those who talk behind my back,
And spread their venom online,
I want you to know that I am not,
A person easily defined.

You see the surface, but not the depths,
The struggles that I bear,
The demons that I fight within,
The burdens that I wear.

You know not of my fears and doubts,
The pain that I have known,
You see my flaws and weaknesses,
But not the strength I've grown.

So go ahead and talk your talk,
And spread your lies and hate,
For I am more than what you see,
And I will not take your bait.

I'll ignore your petty words,
And look to Christ in the face of strife,
For I am so much more than you think,
And I will live my life.
