I Am What I Am - Poem by Guarded Heart

I am what i am
How dare you try to change that
Your words are meaningless now
You abandoned me, remember?
Told me you had given up, you were done trying
Now you think you have a say
With others around to dictate, what makes you think you're special?
Take your hands off me now
When i look in the mirror
I see the me that was hiding
From you all those years
Knowing you wouldn't except me
I'm not afraid to make mistakes now
You can't stand over me anymore
Breathe down someone elses neck
Go to someone who actually gives a damn
Leave me alone in my happiness

You never cared anyway
Just wanted to show off a pretty face
To all your friends, 'look isn't she sweet? '
Thats what they'd say
I can't belive they didn't see through you
I can't belive they never knew
About all the mental abuse

I am what i am
Now you have no say
Keep your fucking thoughts away
You told me to leave
Now you want me to come back
Lifes to hard without me
Look into my sisters eyes
You know you see me
Looking back
I left my mark, on her heart
You can never take that away from me
Try as you might, she'll always come to me

I am what i am
You worthless bitch
And you can never
Take that away from me

> I fear it is a bit long, but i cannot shorten the contempt i feel for the woman who thinks she's my mother<
