Childhood Pain

Ever since I was a child the world looked so bright

It seemed like all the darkness was pushed away by light

But my young mind couldn't comprehend all the truth

After all I was in the starting of my youth

The first time I was offended I thought it was a joke

Though I soon found out they weren't when the words started to choke

When I was punched it was all just a game

As well as the ways they use my name

More years passed and I can see it all clearly

They were hurting me all over gravely

No more pain and sorrow

I want to smile tommorow

I am no longer the weak child

There's no reason for me to be mild

All it takes is showing them who has had enough

And surviving all their torture is what makes you tough

This poem is about: 
Me
