I didn’t use you

Do I understand
what is going on?
No, I am so confused.
I think about the rights and the wrongs
the choices I need to make.
My vision is very blurred.
I say one thing
but I really mean another.
I use money
to gain what I don't need.
I use metaphors to cover up the pain.
I use peopleto cover up the truth.
So now in this power struggle
I am trying to conquer;
know that I didn't use you in the fight
to protect you from the war.
