Scared to death of who I am,
Can't believe how much I ran,
Strong enough to face my fears,
Smart enough to show my tears,
Now I know that I'm not weak,
I have proved I can speak,
Won't be silenced-not again,
Tore me up-made my head spin,
Dizzy in the midst of flashbacks,
Everything feels like attacks,
Deep down I know it's not,
Give myself a fair shot,
Use this chance for good things,
Wait and see what life brings,
Deserving more than I've had,
Need to prove that I'm not bad,
Main thing I say is "no more",
No more of what was before,
Stop this madness- I am through,
All this because I still love you.
