THE PRICE YOU PAY

The price you pay for being ugly
Is full of rotting dismay
The price you pay for friendship
Is the one of a castle far away
The price too often is too high
For lesser mortals and lesser commoners
I know not what to think of this
For here I sit with silent tears
Washing away heatless emotions
What can I do but divine why,
The price to pay is so very high?
