"And the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their Shepherd. He will guide them to springs of living water; and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes." Revelation 7:17

You think you know just what you see
From a simple glance at me.
But beneath this face of stone,
There’s more than blood and bone.
I’m not just an empty soul.
I have a plan, I have a goal.

Why do they all need to be
Looking for the wrong in me?
But these are just the chances:
That from these tiny glances
All the wrongs that they have found
Are ones to which themselves are bound.

So be careful what you care to say.
Somebody needs to watch your back.
Cuz judging’s not the righteous way
And what you don’t see in me you lack.

I love the AABBCC structure :3 Normally I HATE it.... but you pulled it off quite well. It isn't forced, and it isn't painfully done. This earns you major points (:

I'm going to suggest 'Cos as opposed to Cuz, because to me that seems better... but perhaps not. Your call.

I really can't criticize this, because this is a success (: Brava!
