I’m left silent,
I’m left in pain.
You are so violent
and completely insane.
Shut your mouth and listen to what I have to say,
I’m going to take you back to that one specific day.
Sticks and Stones may break your bones
Red seen through my veins,
It keeps me awake all night, shivering and terrified,
But staying strong is the only way..
Welcome to this hostile world,
Now that I know the truth,
All I can say is the consequences seem too dire.
I wish no one goes through this phase,
Where you put down your self respect and only chase,
Wish I could tell you more but my heart has already closed it’s case.
