"You know my name, not my story. You've heard what I've done, not what I've been through."

I was blind
All I saw was me
My thoughts, my problems
But looking back now, I can see
See everything I was put through
All of my pain
Was all just for you
For your personal gain

All of my fears
All because of you
All of my tears
You claim those too
I was so vulnerable
But you were so strengthened

All of my nightmares
Suddenly true
All of my haunting scares
All because you you
You didn’t realize
Your torturous little game
Gave you a terrifying upper hand
By merely mentioning my name

Through it all
I’d say thank you
To the one who made me fall
You changed me, just not the way you wanted to
You strengthened me
With all that pain
Looking back I can see
Reward for the strain

All because of you
I know who I am

I am someone unafraid of people like you
Someone knowing of the pain others go through
Someone strong
Someone unafraid of being wrong
Someone You can never again change
Someone you’ll never be
Like me
