I Wanted To Scream

They tell you to fight back

They assume you can 

They want you to tell them

But I was only 8 when it started

He told me to shut up

He told me he'd kill my family

He told me I was nothing

And so I believed him for the next 2 years

I was a freshman in high school now

I had no respect for myself

I thought I was worthless

I had forgotten how to love myself 

I was scared to tell anyone

She tried to take her life

She got help

She slowly got better

She found a way to love herself again

She is truly alive now

She is me
