Little Me - Poem by joanne fenner

I’m the shy girl that couldn’t do anything right,
I’m the shy girl who cried herself to sleep night after night,
I’m the one who begged for love every day,
But the one you wanted out the way.

My memories are thoughts that hold me back,
They show me every thing that I lack.
No hope or praise, that’s just daft,
If I had a plan you’d just stare and laugh.

I’m the one that would never succeed,
I’m the one that had special needs,
But I wrote this song,
To say you were both wrong.

Yes I’ve made mistakes but aint we all,
It doesn’t mean that forever im forced to crawl,
From all your shit thrown towards my wall,
I’ve washed you off and am now standing tall.

And as you live your meaningless lives from day to day,
I thank god I was the one that got away,
No more chains, no burdens to bear,
My life’s fulfilled now your not there,

I hear of all these lies you spill,
Blaming me for another petty bill,
I hope one day my little me gets away,
For then who will you begin to pray?

See im the one who’s no longer sad,
I’m the one you couldn’t drive mad.
I’m the one who’ll protect us two,
So my little me will never become you.
