Under your home,

I didn’t know how sick you made me…until I left.

She had every symptom of abuse, but everyone thought…

“She just wants attention.”

“It’s just a stage, she’ll get over it.”

“Why is she so moody…”

“Her life would be better if she learned how to smile more…”

Oh if words could kill…you’d have to bury me a thousand times.

No, I didn’t know it was your “love” that made me sick…

Symptoms of…

Low self esteem

Anxiety

Depression

Negative Thinking

Critical self talk

Perfectionism

Sense of worthlessness

And I know you never meant to hurt me…

But you did.

You did.

And I can’t change that.

All I can do is leave it behind me.

Focus on my own health and happiness.

And maybe…

The only way to create it…

Is without you.
