I find it hard to deal with people who hurt
rip skin from my body, scrape scabs from my sores
which never can heal from words that pervert
In the name of love they condemn my life more
I’m tired oh so tired from playing this game
defending myself from people with doubt
If I fight back then I am to blame
It couldn’t be their words spit out from the start
negative comments, emotions strike out
flung like a sword and impaling the heart
When I’m hurt, I bleed, I don’t have control
I’m human, I tell you, you cut me to shreds
thrown under the bus, no way to console
my feelings are worn out and hanging by threads
I know I will never be understood
You feel threatened by truth, you don’t want to see
that I have no family, to them I’m no good
you cried I can’t take this, you criticized me
and threw one last insult . . . I knew you would
You never thought what your words would do
to my life, because it was all about you
If you say you can’t take it and don’t watch what you say
You expect me to stay here and listen to this?
forget the way you ruined my day
putting down what I do again strikes to the heart
Is my life so easy for you to dismiss?
“I hate your blog” isn’t the best way to start
First words from your mouth when I walk in the door
How can you say that when you know what I do?
My passion for living, no one cares that’s for sure
From the day I arrived it was all about you
This ripped apart family has no love anymore.
