The Azoic Conflict

You taught me right
You taught me wrong
You told me to always be strong
You paved the way
You showed me fear
I know now what was unclear
I saw one thing yet heard another
I was too young to understand
I never knew what to believe
I feel so deceived
Confusion in my head
Don't understand all that you said
Yet now I see the light
It's times like these I realize
But how can I with these mixed messages that you did bring?
And forgive all the pain you caused
All of the suffering
Keep my perspective straight
Keep me away from hate
Keep my eyes so bright, uncovered
Oh please won't you guide me towards the light?
Conflict, confusion, distrust...
