He Made Me Say Ouch


He hit me
He kicked me
He made me say ouch

He pushed me
He slapped me
He made me say ouch

As I think
Of how to become
Stronger he tries to make me weaker
Well I Say,
You made me say ouch but I say
You can't make me weaker.

You tried,
Oh yes You tried.
When you try to make me weaker
You make me much stronger.

You made me say ouch once
But know I am getting stronger
Each day.

You may Wonder
How you made me Stronger
And I made you weaker

You may fool once and thats
Shame on you
But if I let you fool me twice thats
Shame on me.

I say thank you
For making me say ouch cause
Now I know what
May be coming in
Real Life.
