Pieces of Me

His harsh words cut through me like a sword

and,

I just sat there

Trying to figure out how to have thicker skin

Instead of considering it was he who had the problem

________________________________________________________________________________

Society has me confused

I don’t know the difference between being DISRESPECTED

and

being SENSITIVE

________________________________________________________________________________

You have given too much power

when the things that once made you proud

Now make you hold your head in shame

And the only difference is his presence

________________________________________________________________________________

Being damaged DOES NOT give you the right to damage me

________________________________________________________________________________

I thought I could love the pain and damage away until

I realized how much pain I was now in

________________________________________________________________________________

I have become the monster that you once were

spewing venom

with the hopes of hurting you before you hurt me

________________________________________________________________________________

Motherhood was exhausting when I was trying to teach my girls self-love as they

watched me sit on the couch loveless
