People grow through experience if they meet life honestly and courageously. This is how character is built. -- Eleanor Roosevelt

I know you’re trying to become better,
I know you’re really not trying to hurt me.
But that’s all you’re doing at the moment.
Every word I hear you say burns me.

And it’s like cigarette burns on my skin,
You stick the butt right on for minutes.
And my heart is wearing thin.
I’m not sure how much more I can borne.

I’m surrounded by venomous objects.
I can’t escape this wretched storm.
I’m surrounded by all these evil things.
I can’t escape, so I mourn, mourn, and mourn.

And I’m on the ground.
I’m on my knees crying.
“Lord, what’s going around?
Help me please become stronger!”

And life is a total pain.
It’s never given me a break.
I can’t do this anymore!
I don’t know how much more I can take!

I’ve tolerated your words.
I’ve had patience with your acts.
But I’m not the same girl.
The new one is sick of your attacks
