First you have to learn

To rip out each others guts
To scratch out each others eyes
To swear to tell the truth
And then start right in with lies

No mercy is the rule
No compassion is the way
Live in fear of being a fool
And then insist on what you say

Not having to be a part of
Anything to do with being fair
What is the cost of a love
That will not endeavor to dare

To live up to any standard
To measure up to any bar
Except to ignore the simplicity

What we do is what we are

I think "What we do is _who_ we are"

Aside from that, not bad.

You're wrong...

My poem.
My way.

What are you
I'm a runner
What are you
I'm a fighter

What are you
I'm a door gunner
What are you
I'm my own kind of writer
