Thrown Away

You never understood me

Only tried to control me

Pass your fears and

Prejudices

Down

To

Me.

Any sign of who I was

Who I might be

Seen as

Insult

Attack

Never

Just

Me

You took away my agency

Under the guise of

Protecting me

Instead you

Silenced

Stunted

Stifled

Me

I was more than you could allow

Too much to handle

Too loud for a girl

Too confident

It scared you

So you

Scared

Me

You took away my joy

Just so you could

Feel in control

Never caring

Thinking

How you

Took it

Away

From

Me

Well, that is the question, isn't it? What if I don't actually know who I am. I have things I do, things I like. but are they who I am? Who knows. But that's what I'm here to figure out.
