I never knew I had no voice
Until I was forced into silence
I didn’t know I had words
‘Till I put them on paper
I’d never been able to fly
But then I tried my wings
I wasn’t sure falling would hurt
Until no one was there to catch me
I didn’t know I wasn’t in control
Until I became their puppet
I wasn’t sure how to tell my story
Until I carved it into my arms

Many things helped me to write this... but mainly it's just some of the many hardships of life.
