I stayed silent when I didn’t want to….
I hid the tears when it came to you…
All the love given to me at a young age was fake….
I did what I did to survive and I had no other choice but to bare their burdens and mistakes….
But my entire world fell suddenly apart….
New paths and love were poured over my broken heart….
There was a space where I could be me….
A space where I felt completely free….
I looked back and I knew….
I could never return to the place where I never had the love I needed, a place where love never grew….
