I'm listening to you
Scream and yell about how
I can't live up to your expectations
I sit there and look away
I can't stand the horrible look
across your face
You look at me with such hatred,
such pain
As if I have done something so
wrong to you
You've thrown me around like an
Old rag doll
You've shouted harsh words at me
that have made me cut
Made me scream
Made me believe
That I am nothing
and I won't take this anymore
I'll show what I can
Something better than you
and watch these tears roll
Down this face
Because you'll be sweeping them away
