Are you, the type!

Devon bates 1980 (Norfolk)

We all, are, unique, infinite, diffrent, in, our ways, and beliefs!
Are you, the type, to love, the cold?
Do you, run, to the air, and turn, it on?
Are you, the type, that likes, heat?
When, your body, gets cold, you, shiver, then, your bones, screech?
What, is, better, to you?
Money, and power, fame, and towers?
No care, for, any others, no worries, for their, tears, in shower?
Is life, yours, and, in truth?
Do you, share, it, with others, giving, your best, the whole, way, through?
Joy, does, it calm, your mind?
Excite, your presence, or, paralyze, blind?
Is, the sun, coming, out, for you?
Yet, or would, you, perfer, the clouds?
A way, to seize, all others, in rule?
What type, are you?
The mask, is here, not all, will give, clues?
What moves, your intentions?
Robbing, others blind, behind lies?
While, your own, insides, you despise?
Yet, or, are you, just trying, to make, it through?
What, moves you, a question, that, I, feel!
In, a land, truly, cold, where, babies, are killed!
So, what, moves, you?
Is, Robin hood, your favorite?
Did, to you, his mask, reveal, another, way, to kill, and, say, to another, good riddance!
So, what moves, you?
