Never forget how they once treated you.
They destroyed you, stole your confidence
And left you all alone.
You don’t deserve it, you never have and you never will.
They have no right to do this to you.
They turn to you, as if nothing has ever happened.
Never forgive them, how could you? They torture you, ruined your life.
They told you your life has no meaning…never listen to them.
Fight for what you want, need, and love.
Never beg on your knees or ask for mercy.
Stand up for yourself, do not hide behind others.
Give respect and you will get it back,
Always remember, manners, manners, manners
Face your fears and never back down,
Above all else:
Just one more step, that’s it…
Oh, how far you’ve come,
Causing pain while relieving it
Taking three steps forward and two steps back.
You keep pushing yourself past your limits,
Pain courses through your veins.
You feel alive again
You feel something.
Reality is only a contorted version of a fantasy,
Slipping away from reality
Seeping into your dreams, where everything is whole
And you’re no longer shattered.
But broken or not, you prevail
Leaving your haven to resume a tragedy.
You are not broken… You are healing
