You've kicked me,
You've hit me,
Yelled and nearly killed me.
I won't stand for it anymore.
Because there's nothing you can do,
To make me stay this way.
I can never look you in the eye again,
Or else I'll never be free.
You've trapped me underneath,
Put me through hell,
Left me to wallow and drown.
I wanted to be there,
But you always pushed me aside.
You wouldn't let me come too close,
Made me want to cry.
So now all I want to do,
Because of you,
Is die.
