YOU TOLD ME

All these things

ALL THE THINGS YOU TOLD ME

You told me I’m not funny
You told me I am mean
You told me that I cannot sing
You told me that I scream

My eyes are way too tiny
My breath is never fresh
And if I cooked you dinner
You’d say it is a mess

You told me I’m the brightest
I bet you I did see
That all the things you told me
Weren’t about me

You know, I tried to heal you
With all my love and energy
But they put scars upon you
That last ’till eternity

I know they didn’t treat you right
No respect nor dignity
But why my love, please do explain
Would you do such to me

I really have to go now
Take care of other things
I hope you will remember
We’re all beloved beings

All the things you told me
I know they weren’t true
Well I broke free and I’m still me
And I hope you’ll find you too
