I'm Ok

Newer Stuff

Scrapes and bruises from the torment

bleeding from the constant abuse

no matter how many times I ran away

it just wasn't any use.


Laughter all around me

pointing at my face

no one understood, no one could see

how did I end up in that place?


My body was shaken up

my mind was black and blue

no matter what it was never enough

if only anyone knew.


All the time I think about it

and I'm glad I mad it to today

and despite all the pain I went through

I look in the mirror and I'm okay.
