I knew shouting voices.

When I was happy,
I knew being passive.

When I was happy,
I knew being walked all over.

When I was happy,
I knew discouragement.

When I was happy,
I knew what it was to be worthless.

When I was happy,
I knew tears rolling down my cheeks.

When I was happy,
I knew blades to my wrist.

When I was happy,
I knew what it meant to be sad.

When I was sad,
I knew hugs and kisses.

When I was sad,
I knew love.

When I was sad,
I knew what it felt like to be cared about.

When I was sad,
I knew beauty.

When I was sad,
I knew what a smile was.

When I was sad,
I knew a laugh.

When I was sad,
I knew what is was to be happy.
