Clammy palms, Closing throat
Why didn’t I know?
I saw the clues but I would’ve never imagined this dude
Pressing himself onto me like I’m just a hot piece of meat
Why can’t I see?
Why can’t I breathe?
My innocence fading away like Spiderman in the Infinity War
My dignity swiped like a credit card at a store
I finally realized: I’m not a kid anymore
When I close my eyes to dream at night,
I can feel his breath all over me as I lose my sight
I can feel his hands grabbing me in places I never knew I even had
Hearing his voice like an annoying TV ad
Aren’t I supposed to feel glad?
At least I wasn’t raped, so Why do I feel like a dead body draped?
Why do I have to suffer? I’m tougher…
Wayyy tougher than this, Man… I’m pissed
How did I miss this?
I was so naive, thinking “Nothing can happen to me”
My life ain’t never been no breeze
But come on, you can’t keep wearing your heart on your sleeve
Letting people poke at it like it’s some sample meat
Go get what you need
Go out and become all that you want to be
Cause now I know, some people aren’t who they seem
But pain is what made me truly grow…
