You
You gave me life
You created me
You carried me
You gave birth to me
You gave me something I still carry
You gave me something I’ve stored away
You gave me something I have hidden
You gave me something permanent
You gave me secrets to hold
You gave me memories to hide
You gave me Pandora’s box
You gave me the black vial
You gave me the drive to succeed
You made me the best
You made me pass with full marks
You made me work so hard
You made me top of the class
You made me first in the school
You made me pass with honours
You made me pass everything
You made me never quit
You made me never accept second best
You made me reach for the prize
You made me stand on my own two feet now
You made me stand in the corner naked
You made me go hungry
You made me go thirsty
You made me go cold
You made me go ashamed
You made me go filthy
You gave me dirty clothes
You made me go stinking
You made everyone laugh at me
You gave my toys away
You gave my books away
You gave my bike away
You gave my childhood away
You took my innocence
You took my soul away
You took my happiness away
You took my belief away
You made me lie to protect you
You made me silent to protect you
You made me steal to protect you
You made me “fall down the stairs”
You made me do things I didn’t understand
You made me alone
You made me hate myself
You made me loathe myself
You made me abuse myself
You made me hurt myself
You made me touch myself
You made me touch you
You gave me nothing I wanted
You took all I was
You gave me hurt that I didn’t know I could feel
You gave me so many tears to cry
You made me strong enough
You made me scared enough
You made me scarred enough
You made me angry enough
You made me hate you
You made me loathe all that you are
You made me despise you
You made me you Fucking Bitch
You gave me your temper
You gave me your face
You gave me your name
You gave me your beliefs
You made me all you wanted
You made me all your failings
You made me all your hatred
You made me all your pettiness
You made me
You never cared for me
You always left me out
You always made me bottom of your list
You may have made me in love
You made me live in hatred
You made me live in fear
You made me scared of the dark.
You made me, remember that one day
You made me determined
You made me a fighter
You made me survive despite you
You made me brave enough to tell
You made me strong enough to cry
You made me big enough to need a shoulder
You made me confident enough to trust someone
You made me all I was
You made me find the real me
You made my past
You will not make my future.
