The Same Old Flame

How many more times
Will I be burned
By the same old flame?

I set myself up
With wayward dreams

Am I truly transparent [in all of my motives]
That others suffice
To have me let go?

Will I really be missed
Or will I remain
Blatantly hated,

For the reasons
Made up of the facts
That are no longer real?

Will you truly remember?
Will they truly acknowledge
Their faults in this one day?

Will you someday
Uncover the truth
And accept me for me?
