The Deeply Taboo Needle Drop

You’ve no sway over your height but you can put on heels to defy it
You’ve no control of the circumstances of your birth, each one of us is priceless
You can’t change your skin color, texture, or tone but can use potions to darken or lighten
You can’t not be from whence you hail but you can learn things to help it’s hiding
You can’t know what the ultimate truth is but you can always stop lying
Your ancestral trail and appearance has no real bearing on what your heart’s deciding
Maybe the noise in your mind can’t be silenced
Maybe the way that you are isn’t so frightening
You can learn to project and sing but you haven’t really changed your voice
Hate too is a decision and suffering from long gone sadnesses is a choice
