"And though she be but little, she is fierce."- Shakespeare


You tell me I am stupid

And that my brains are fried

You tell me I am worthless

The fact is not denied

 

You tell me I am ugly

And that I am a fool

You tell me I am crazy

I know that it is true

 

You tell me I'm not wanted

And that I am not loved

You tell me I am retarded

(I already knew that, duh)

 

You tell me I am nothing

And I will never be

You tell me I don't deserve life

And what you say I believe

 

You tell me I am a disappointment

And that I am of no use

You tell me I am a failure

And I accept the truth

 

You tell me I can't be a writer

Or a dancer or a star

You tell me I am a no-good loser

I know I'll never go far

 

You took away my everything

Including my self-esteem

I know I am to blame cuz

I listen to what you tell me
