which title do you like better? i need help picking one, thank you. (the What lies beneath is supposed to have pretty cursive writing and the battle grounds font is more structured which one do you think i should go with. its for my creative writing class!)

~~What Lies Beneath
No motivation, yeah okay because you’re always right
But don’t even think about defending yourself and asking why
Just nod and say ‘yes, of course’ whatever helps you sleep at night
While you stay awake trying not to cry

In their path of destruction
Goin around dropin bombs without any coordinates in their fight
Leaving behind a cloud of frustration
Not sure whether to raise the white

Their only reply is the truth is hard to swallow
Yeah , well so is this pill to take the pain away
Because they can make you feel so hallow
Then they’ll wonder why you don’t wanna stay

Another blow must be missing your bulletproof vest
With their choice of words they must think you’re deaf
And it feels as if your chest
Is riddled with holes making it hard to catch your breath

But you shouldn’t believe their lies
Just hand them a mirror wave and say good-bye.
