Hear me? See me?

All of my past you were there. 

You told me I couldn't do it

You told me I couldn't be that person.

Y'all told me to stop caring

and that worthless was all I am, 

all I'll ever be.

Can you hear me now?

Can you see me now? 

That's all I want.

That's all I need.

I AM THAT PERSON

I wanted to show you your lie

I wanted to make you see the truth,

to hear what I had become later on.

Depression.

Thats what you gave me

All those years. 

Motivation.

This overcame all of that.

This made me succeed

When you meant to destroy me, you failed.

You instead did the opposite.

I hated you, yet you did this

I wanted to make you miserable,

I wanted to call you out.

Can you hear me now?

Can you see me now? 

That's all I want.

That's all I need.

I AM THAT PERSON

I cried every night.

I heard you in the other room and I wept.

Can you hear, can you see? 

I'm not the girl I was then

Now, I can be me.

But can you see?

I am the person you didn't want me to be.
