yeah…

tried to play nice…

tried to fit into the box you put me in….

tried to be what I thought you needed….

but people pleasing just for validation and approval…

leaves you fucking bleeding…

who she was…

was never the real me…

born into a world where I was never accepted…

abused by a person who promised my heart was protected…

but I’m not a victim so don’t ever confuse…

a person is not for your own personal use….

and I forgive but my heart doesn’t forget….

you kept on coming….hit after hit after hit…

screwed up minds and I can’t deal with your bullshit today…

take your ideas of love and what it means and be on your way…

because I don’t need you…to be okay…

no I don’t need you to be okay….

he said…

play nice…

don’t curse…

girls like you need to be quiet and…

belong with pretty little lines and purses….

pretty girls like you don’t listen to rap…

no they don’t speak until given permission….

who am I to stop a man with mindless ambition and a heartless mission…

I hid too long from the pain…

Pretending to be someone I never was….

Some people…

They just hurt you for no reason, they don’t need a reason because….

It was never your responsibility to fix them…

Your heart and mind and love deserve more than thoughts and memories of him….

Say what you want…your voice needs to be heard…

Do what your heart wants…because now he’s not the one to have the last word….

Yeah he’s not the one with the last word….

You’re no longer a captive bird….

Be yourself and don’t ever fucking apologize for it…

The persona he wanted you to wear, deep down you know it never quite fit…

And you were meant to be more in this world than his puppet…

Don’t live with regrets and revenge…there’s nothing and no one in this world you ever need to covet…
