And if I tried to say something
I was told to shut up
You have nothing to complain about
I have enough worries
Leave me alone
Right away I doubt myself
But I know what I know
And it pisses me off that I know
It’d be easier not to know
Easier to pretend nothing’s happening
But when I do, it’s like I don’t care
Don’t care about anything
And have no energy
Just want to lie down
And I don’t want that
I want a life
A life better than I’ve had
I need people around me
Who support me and what I’m going through
That I can say anything I want to
And that I can trust that
I won’t be yelled at, put down,
ridiculed, but treated with respect.
I don’t want sarcasm, or it
minimized that it wasn’t that bad.
