I know what you do to me, I wish someone would see.
I know how you are. You convince others they know better.
You deny my reality. I don't understand yours.
You say I twist your words. Then you twist mine.
You hurt me and demand I say sorry.
And now I take my power and refuse you.
You redouble your efforts and increase the pain.
But you have not seen something.
I see you now for what you are.
That I see me now for what I was.
I have changed.
So the pain I feel is the pain of change.
So the pain I feel is your loss.
The pain I feel is the hurt of chains-
The chains that bound me, pressing into me
As I force them apart and become free.
I am only down today because the chains are pressing in
Becasue I have seen the weakest link and I am breaking free.
