I never thought my voice would rise.
I always sat there and cried.
My mother was there yet she was vanishing slowly into the air.
Though i had on a smile nothing was worth wild.
Everything thing i did. Whatever i knew.
It was all a plot.
My dady never loved me. My mother was no mother.
I always got bullied. Held on and didnt worry.
Cause everynight i pretended it was all right.
My daddy touching me. I couldnt even breath.
All i did was hide pretending everything was alright.
But no more.
I am no longer that little girl.
I am Strong.
I am a lioness.
Proud and loud.
So dont think i will hurt again.
i dont even play pretend.
This is my strength.
This is my time to rise.
To tell others not to hide.
Stay strong through it all and you will be on top.
