Oh I feel the pain running deeper….

And some days I feel strong and others it’s like I’m getting weaker…

It hurts when I think of all the ways you betrayed my trust…

But we do what we do and we survive as we must…

I trusted you with my whole heart….

Never did I question the times you tore it all apart….

And I don’t blame you in the way you believe….

You can only give love away to receive…

And I tried…

I clung to you until there was nothing left in me to cry….

But the truth is…

All the love wouldn’t change me…

Because if you don’t love yourself…

You’ll never truly be free….

So I lay my hands down and close my eyes…

I’m exhausted…and I’m done with living a thousand different lies….

If you love me, love me…but don’t tell me who to be…

Don’t tell me who to be…
