My Own Being

I wish you could see me now.
I’m not the girl I was.
Not naïve and stupid.
No, now, I can stand on my own.
You took control, and the only reason:
That silly little girl I was let you.
Now, you couldn’t do it.
But, I would dare you.
Go ahead and try.
I still remember that day.
Almost as well as what I ate for breakfast.
You beat me down till nothing was left.
Now that I see the facts: for little kids,
You were harsh.
I felt the pain, and my only thought:
To run away from it.
I cried a little too much.
People I though I could trust
Had hurt me deep down.
But, that was then.
And this, this is now.
I don’t need you to keep me up.
Back then, maybe I did.
I needed you to tell me who I was
And who I was supposed to be.
But now, I am my own.
I know who I want to be
And where I want to go.
You can’t knock me down like you did before.
I am stronger now.
And I know that you’ll never REALLY be sorry.
So, I’ll say it:
I forgive you.
Not for what you said. No, that hurt will stay.
I say sorry because you made me stronger.
Thank you.
Because I know, you’ll never be as strong as me.
