    I know you are not proud of me
    I can see the shame in your eyes
    But what do you think made me this way?
    How was I supposed to feel, so then I cried
    You stuck your face in your book
    And left me alone in the world
    Alone to deal with my grief and sorrow
    A pain filled soul in a little girl
    As I grew, I made mistakes
    And I tried to deal with my pain
    Every time you looked at me
    You shook your head in disdain
    Never a hug or words of love
    To me, did you ever give
    You left me unloved and hungry
    And expected me to live
    And when you tried to finally care
    It was way to late for you
    I was turned from expression to a lonely stare
    And no one knew what to do
    I was taunted and scared
    By the nightmares rocking me in my sleep
    By the time I turned 16
    I wanted my life to end
    I never had a chance in this world
    And now you wonder why I fail?
    Look deep and see my scars
    A story each on can tell
    I can’t do this any longer
    It is useless to even try
    I will only disappoint you more
    And you will only make me cry
    If you ever take responsibility
    For the pain you brought me
    Maybe I can forgive you
    And set my anger free
    Until then please don’t judge me
    For I have turned out just like you
    So the next time you are ashamed of me
    Be ashamed of yourself too

    One_Love
