Fool.

Do I seem stupid to you?
Do not take me for a fool.
Did my stupidity scare you?
Do not take me for a fool.

Everything you say and do.
Is ment to put me down.
To destroy whats left of my mind.
Did you think you where victorious?

Do I seem stupid to you?
Do not take me for a fool.
Did my stupidity scare you?
Do not take me for a fool.

You branded me.
Labeled me.
Stupid is what I am to you.
Just a foolish girl.

You made one mistake.
You thought you knew.
But the joke is on you.
The fool was never me.
It was you.

Good repitition. I like the raw emotion pulsing out of the cracks of simple words like "fool" and "branded." Good work.
