Being Me


I trusted you

You were someone

I looked up to

I aspired to be like

I tried to impress

More than anything

I wanted your approval

So badly

Then, after catching me off guard

You made those comments

Knew he would tell me

Put on as much guilt as you could

Tried to make me feel sorry

For being me

You robbed me of my faith in you

For being me

You took away my desire to be like you

For being me

You snatched all my self-confidence

For being me

You made me cry for an hour or so

For being me

You broke me

Made me feel like I'm not good enough

All because I'm myself

All for being me
